Cranberry Margarita

Tomorrow is National Margarita Day!  February 22nd to be exact.  Kind of snuck up on me.  I wanted to try a few different flavored margaritas before the actual day to share with you all, but I guess one new will do for now.  So....Happy National Margarita Day.......tomorrow!!

Have I mentioned that it's Friday yet?  Well it is!  Thank goodness......I am glad to get this week out of the way.  This margarita is one I have not heard of before.  The proportions are good and this margarita does not have an overwhelming tequila flavor (which I am thankful for).  I found this recipe from Ali over at Gimme Some Oven.  It looked good and I had to try it.

I still do want to try other flavors.......I am thinking of trying to create a banana margarita.  I do love the flavor of bananas in my cocktails...hopefully it will turn out good.  Do you have any amazing margarita recipes to share?  I would love to hear about and try them.  I look forward to your recipes!

Here is the recipe for a Cranberry Margarita:

  • 1 1/2 ounces cranberry cocktail juice
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce silver tequila
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
In a shaker, add all of your ingredients, top off with a handful of ice and gently shake.  You want to mix your ingredients, but not shrink the ice cubes.  Dump everything into a short cocktail glass and enjoy!

Here is a photo of the end results:

Happy Friday to you all, I sure know I'm glad it's Friday!

Cheers!!
