A Cranberry Lime Margarita is the perfect way to add a little fiesta into your holiday festivities! Tart cranberry, a little sourness from fresh lime juice, and of course, plenty of silver tequila!
Tequila is my favorite liquor, and I typically sip it neat. I know, I just heard many of your stomachs churn. But when sipping a quality, higher end, tequila, the taste is quite smooth. Trust me, there are better tequilas than that fire water you did shooters of during your college days. Actually, one of the first posts I published on this blog was Give Sipping a Shot.
I realize, despite my evangelism of the distilled spirits, many of you will never be converts. The path is indeed narrow. And there is nothing wrong with that. Delicious cocktails abound for every palate preference! For example, who doesn't love a good margarita?! Blended with ice, on the rocks, or just chilled, they are easy the most popular drink featuring tequila.
Even the classic margarita could use a makeover for the Christmas season. If you are looking for a little holiday cheer in your glass, try out my Cranberry Lime Margarita this year!
I recently purchased this KitchenAid blender, after my previous blender met an untimely demise. I couldn't be more pleased with it. It powers through any task I ask it to blend, and makes blended margaritas in a snap. If you are looking for a blender, I couldn't recommend this one more!
