Christmas cranberry margarita

To make the margaritas, fill a cocktail shaker with ice; combine the cranberry juice, tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice; and, in the words of recipe writer Rebecca Rather, shake like hell. Then strain the margarita mixture into some glasses full of ice, and start sipping.

If you’re feeling particularly festive, you can garnish the drink with thinly sliced limes, fresh cranberries or a small ornament threaded with a skewer. To make the sugar rim, just run a wedge of lime around the edge of your glass, and dip it into a saucer of sugar.

Yield: 4 servings


Wedge of lime
Ice cubes for shaking and serving
1/2 cup cranberry juice or cranberry juice cocktail
1/2 cup silver or other 100% agave tequila
1/4 cup orange liqueur (Grand Marnier, Triple Sec or Citronage)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Garnishes: thinly sliced limes or fresh cranberries


Run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, and dip the edge in sugar to coat. Fill glasses with ice. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine all the ingredients, and shake like hell.
Strain into ice-filled glasses and serve.
