Cranberry Margarita Recipe

A Fall-Ready Cranberry Margarita

While I'm a fan of the classic margarita most days, during November, I like to enjoy its Thanksgiving-themed cousin, the cranberry margarita. It's surprising how much the addition of cranberry juice changes the flavor of the tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice cocktail. It's festive, familiar, but potent with a rich autumnal hue. Shake and serve straight up, or pour over ice, like I did.

I'm going to to totally make this...I've just recently become a tequila fan. Well, silver tequila. And I've always been a vodka/cranberry drinker so I think this sounds perfect for me.

cranberry juice accentuates the taste of tequila instead of masking it like lime does. Just a little FYI. I personally LOVE the taste of tequila though, :shrug:
