Limes are tart. Cranberries are also tart. What, then, would happen if you used cranberries instead of limes in a margarita? DIY Cocktails and I decided to find out.
Turns out that a cranberry margarita is a festive alternative to your traditional margarita. It is tart, elegant, and satisfying. It would make a great aperitif for Thanksgiving or a nice addition to any holiday party.
We used 100% cranberry juice for this drink. If you wanted to go sweeter, you could add simple syrup to the drink, or just use a cran/apple mix instead.
(Makes two cocktails)
3 oz cranberry juice
2 oz tequila
1 oz triple sec
In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with cranberries, if you so desire. Enjoy!
