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!
