I'd boot up with a live cd,

mount your partition containing the messed up sudoers file.
replace sdx with you partition.

sudo mount /dev/sdx /mnt

sudo mousepad /mnt/etc/sudoers

heres the default


# /etc/sudoers
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.

Defaults env_reset

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Uncomment to allow members of group sudo to not need a password
# (Note that later entries override this, so you might need to move
# it further down)

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
