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?
- Yield: 1 1x
- Category: Cocktails
- 2 oz Cranberry juice
- 1 ½ oz Tequila
- ½ oz Triple sec
- Fresh cranberries
- Fresh rosemary sprigs
- Use a Solo Squared cup and the 10 oz Clear Cup to create a cocktail shaker, add cranberry juice, tequila, triple sec, ice, and squeeze of lime. Shake to combine.
- Moisten the rim of a the 9oz Clear Cup with the lime wedge and dip in Solo AnyDay Paper Plate filled with salt.
- Pour the cranberry margaritas into the rim salted cups.
- Garnish with a rosemary sprig speared with cranberries and a lime wedge.
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.
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.
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!
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!
