cranberry margaritas.

In an attempt to cleanse for the New Year, I've found it better to ease into it by adding a little retox to the detox. This is my favorite addition so far, and great for those leftover holiday cranberries. Original recipe found here. ¡Salud!


                                                       You'll need:
            • 3/4 cup 100% cranberry juice
            • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
            • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz) fresh or thawed cranberries
            • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice (or 5-6 limes)
            • 3/4 cup tequila!
            • 1/2 cup orange liqueur (or orange juice)

      1. Pour the cranberry juice into the blender, reserving 1 Tbsp in a bowl.
      2. Sprinkle 3 Tbsp sugar onto a small plate.
      3. Use the cranberry juice to coat the rims of 4 to 6 glasses (6 to 8 oz each) and then dip the glasses into the sugar. Fill with ice and set aside.
      4. Reserve 12 cranberries and place the rest in the blender along with the sugar, lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. Blend until smooth.
      5. Pour the strained margarita into glasses and garnish with reserved berries and leftover lime slices.
      6. Enjoy!
