Feliz Navidad! If you are celebrating a tropical style Christmas or are just missing the warmth after Toronto’s insane ice storm this weekend, I suggest you trek out to the store and pick up the ingredients for this cranberry margarita. A margarita is a drink that will instantly sweep you away to a warmer place. The cranberry pairs naturally with the lime citrus tones of this cocktail and give it a more festive feel.
Recipe is from Gimme Some Oven (my latest find and newest crush) and can be found below the cut.
- 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
- 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau or Triple Sec
- ice cubes
Stir all ingredients together until blended. Serve over ice in sugar- or salt-rimmed glasses, garnished with fresh cranberries and lime wedges if desired.
