Cranberry Margarita Recipe

Cranberry Margaritas

We love our margaritas here in Texas and even though summer is gone and winter is here that doesn’t mean margarita season is over. ‘Tis the season for cranberry margaritas!

I love margaritas and these cranberry margaritas are so festive and perfect for the holiday season. Impress your friends and any guests that come over for the holidays. The only question you’ll need to ask them is, salt or no salt?

SOLO cup

Ever notice those lines on the Solo cups? The first line just so happens to measure 1 ounce so if you don’t have a jigger, you can use the cups to measure out ingredients.


Salted rim for margaritas

Fill a Solo AnyDay Paper Plates with coarse salt. Moisten the rim of the 9oz clear plastic cup with a lime wedge and dip in the salt.


margarita cocktail shaker

No cocktail shaker? Use two Solo cups to create a makeshift cocktail shaker! I used a Solo Squared cup and a Solo 10 oz Clear Cup to shake up the cranberry juice, tequila, triple sec, ice, and lime. Shake shake, pour, shake shake, pour!


Cranberry Margaritas

COCKTAIL TIP: Instead of the boring lime wheel garnish, make these cranberry and rosemary stirrers. Clean the fresh rosemary sprigs with a damp paper towel and gently remove 1 to 2 inches of leaves from the stalk. Spear cranberries and a lime wedge. If you’re serving a party, I recommend making these one or two days in advance and storing them in the refrigerator. Not freezer, the rosemary sprigs will turn brown.

It’s going to be cranberry margarita happy hour every day this holiday season. Cheers to that!
