4 cups ice
16 oz can whole cranberry jelly
6 oz Tequila
6 oz sweet & sour mix*
3 oz fresh* lime juice
3 oz triple sec or cointreau
I always make fresh lime juice and make my own sweet & sour mix.
See sweet & sour recipe in the cocktail chapter...
Sweet & Sour Mix:
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup fresh lime juice
2 cups simple syrup
1 cup water
2 cups granulated sugar
Cranberry Margaritas are a holiday tradition at my house, the perfect holiday cocktail!
This recipe was created as a clever way to use leftover cranberry sauce.
Cranberry Margaritas are so festive you'll serve them at ALL your holiday parties.
This recipe makes ONE BLENDER FULL.
Put all ingredients in your blender, turn it on "let 'er rip"
Blend until smooth and the ice chunks are well blended.
Listen and you will hear the ice chunks blend in.
Serve in really cool glasses rimmed with SALT or SUGAR...
Serve with fresh lime wedges or garnish with a lime flag
Follow the same proceedure to make other fruit margaritas...Cranberry, peach, mango or strawberries.
Or Go Nuts...Blend them all together for a CranPeaManBerry Margarita...!
You may use any type of tequila you like.
In the video I use two types of tequila, Jose Cuervo Especial and Patron.
This year we used Herradura tequila for Thanksgiving!
