Christmas is almost here but you still have time to pick up a few last minute “necessities”! Dazzle your guests this year with these refreshing Frozen Cranberry Margaritas!
If you’re looking for the perfect Holiday cocktail this is it! These Frozen Cranberry Margaritas have just the right amount of sweet and tart flavor.
I wanted to make a festive cocktail for our Christmas celebration this year and I had my heart set on Cranberry Margaritas. So I did a little searching for the perfect recipe. We had a lot of fun taste testing and getting the ingredients just right! (It was a tough job but someone had to do it!)
I definitely have a bit of a sweet tooth but Paul likes a bit more tartness. This Cranberry Margarita recipe is the perfect compromise. Just the right amount of sweet and tart flavor.
I love how pretty and inviting they look too! I used a sliced lime wedge and fresh cranberries to garnish them but you could also use Sugared Cranberries to add to the frosty look.
Frozen Cranberry Margaritas
- 1 1/2 Cups Cranberry juice ,100 % juice brand
- 3/4 Cup Fresh lime juice
- 3/4 Cup Tequila
- 1/2 Cup Cointreau
- 1/2 Cup Sugar ,optional
- Ice cubes ,about 3-5 C for blending
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high for about 3 minutes. Blend until a smooth slushy consistency is reached and there are no large ice chunks.
- Sugar or salt rim of glass and garnish with fresh cranberries and a sliced lime wedge.
Dazzle your Holiday guests with Frozen Cranberry Margaritas!
These Frozen Cranberry Margaritas can also be served on the rocks if you prefer or do not have a blender. Just stir ingredients together well and pour over ice.
