While I'm a fan of the classic margarita most days, I'm also a fan of it's Fall counterpart — 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 and familiar, but potent and with a rich autumnal hue. Shake and serve straight up, or pour over ice, like I did.
1 1/3 cups cranberry juice
1 cup orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
2/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
