This Cranberry Margarita Cocktail Just Made Xmas WAY More Merry

Cranberry Margarita

May your cocktails be merry and bright.

Looking for the perfect cocktail to complement your holiday cocktail parties? This gorgeous winter-themed cocktail is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas. It pairs perfectly with appetizers or entrees, lending a bright, citrusy kick that's as easy to drink as a party punch.

We like to use the Tres Agaves Margarita Mix, it makes cocktail mixing supremely simple. Using a pre-made Margarita Mix also makes it easy to whip up enough drink for a crowd. Just toss it into a pitcher with cranberry juice, tequila and triple sec, and you'll be pouring gourmet cocktails for everyone! 

If you like your margaritas super-limey, double or triple the lime juice. It'll add a fresh kick to your drink. If you don't have access to pure cranberry juice, a splash of cranberry juice cocktail will work, too.
