RECIPE 6 of my THANKSGIVING MENU SERIES: SPICY CRANBERRY MARGARITA 🎄🍸
Tequila lovers, this one is for you. I will warn you that these are a little too easy to drink. 🤣 My father in law, Bill, actually gave us the “Holiday Cranberry Margarita” recipe from last year, I just added in the spicy honey element to change it up. This is everything you want a holiday margarita to be! And the great thing about this recipe, is that it’s VERY easy to batch as well, making it even better. Again, just multiple the recipe X the number of people or margs you want to make. Make it that morning so it’s one less thing you have to do.
Note: If you want to kick the heat up a notch, muddle in some fresh jalapeños – but I personally enjoy the flavor of spicy or hot honey for this. Enjoy!
3 oz PURE Cranberry Juice
2 oz Tequila
1 oz Lime Juice (freshly squeezed!)
1 oz Cointreau or Triple Sec
.5 oz Spicy or Hot Honey
More honey to rim glass
Turbinado sugar (or whatever you have)
Cranberries + Sprig of Fresh Rosemary for garnish
Sugar the rim of the glass with spicy honey and turbinado sugar, and set aside. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake shake shake! Pour into martini or cocktail glass, then garnish with cranberry skewers and rosemary.
For a mocktail: replace the tequila & Cointreau with either a NA tequila, sparkling water, or even ginger beer!
