Cranberry Margaritas

Standard

Are you having people over for the holidays? Then you’ve got to make this cocktail for your friends and families! These cranberry margaritas are so fresh and delicious that you will absolutely be asked for a second round. The addition of cranberry juice adds fun flavor, a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of tartness, to the traditional margarita. I did A LOT of recipe testing over Thanksgiving to come up with the winning combination below, so I promise it’s a good one!Cranberry Margaritas / www.sarasfavoritethings.wordpress.comTurns out margaritas aren’t just tasty in the summer heat – they are just as delicious in chilly winter temperatures! The red cranberries, the green limes and the “snowy” frosted glass make these festive and full of holiday cheer!Cranberry Margaritas / www.sarasfavoritethings.wordpress.com

Cranberry Margaritas

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 3 shots tequila
  • 3 shots cranberry juice (use 100% cranberry juice with no added sugar)
  • 2 shots freshly squeezed lime juice (2-3 limes, depending on how juicy they are)
  • 2 shots Triple Sec
  • crushed ice (it’s best to buy a bag from the store)
  • Kosher salt for rim of glass
  • Cranberries and lime slices for garnish

Directions:

Salt the rim of each glass using the pictured instructions below. Make sure to use a squeezed lime to wet the lip of the glass because the salt will stick to lime juice. If you used water, it will just melt the salt. Then, fill each glass with ice.

In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, cranberry juice, lime juice, and Triple Sec. Add a big handful of ice and shake it up! Pour the cocktail equally into two glasses through the strainer at the top of the shaker.

Garnish with some fresh cranberries and a slice of lime. Serve right away. Cheers!Cranberry Margaritas / www.sarasfavoritethings.wordpress.comAfter everyone has a cranberry margarita hand, I recommend playing this game to really get the party going! Have fun!
