The holidays are coming! It feels like for so much of the year I am shocked that it’s the new year, and I am writing last years date on everything. Then I wake up one morning and it’s back to school time and then bam as if we tripped into warp speed I am wrapping gifts for Christmas. Why does this happen? It’s as if from January to September we have been marching up a mountain and the October comes and we get on a sled and cruise down, barely able to stop and enjoy the holiday moments. Until we find ourselves on the couch January second when all starts again.
Can we ban together an make this year different? Let’s start with making a drink shall we?
How to Make a Cranberry Margarita
In a drink shaker add:
- 1/2 cup cranberry juice or cranberry juice cocktail
- 1/2 cup silver or other 100% agave tequila
- 1/4 cup Triple Sec
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Then shake it. And shake it. And shake it some more. Then pour over ice.
Garnishes this festive drink with a toothpick stuck through multiple cranberries and put it in the glass!.
You could also use a sugar rimmed cup to add an extra layer of fun.
I am planning to serve this as guests arrive for Thanksgiving this year.
