"We love cranberry margaritas because they're beautiful and festive, and are a reminder that margaritas aren't just for summer."

How to Make It

Step 1

Dip rims of 6 (8-oz.) glasses in 1 Tbsp. cranberry juice; dip rims in sugar to coat. Fill glasses with ice. Process cranberries, tequila, 3/4 cup cranberry juice, lime juice, orange liqueur, and 1/3 cup sugar in a blender 30 seconds. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large pitcher. Stir in chilled club soda and orange juice. Pour into prepared glasses. Garnish, if desired.

Step 2

*Thawed frozen cranberries may be substituted.

Delicious and not too strong. I made it once as margaritas and used vodka another time... both were very good.

These are delicious. The straining takes a little time but I blended the ingredients ahead of time and then just added club soda before serving. I wished I had doubled the recipe.
