Sour cranberry juice, lime, and tequila are lightly sweetened with a little orange juice and a sprinkle of agave on this cranberry margarita.
Mix up a pitcher for your party or shake a cocktail as you relax and watch the Christmas tree lights this year. Or a little more realistic, drink a glass while you hide in your room and wrap the gifts late at night. Whatever the occasion, this cocktail is a light, refreshing break from the most festive food indulgences.
I am delighted to share this recipe with you today. As part of my association with In The Raw, I have been playing with Agave In The Raw® this month and guess what? Agave is a perfect combination for tequila. This is a "festive" cocktail that would happily serve throughout the year.
- 6 ounces cranberry juice cocktail
- 1 1/2 ounces of silver tequila
- 1 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed or store-bought orange juice
- 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1/2 tablespoon raw agave
- orange wedge to decorate (optional
- lemon wedge for garnish (optional)
Fill a shaker or large jar with ice half full. Add the Cranberry Juice Cocktail, Tequila, Orange Juice, Lime Juice, and Agave In The Raw. Cover well and shake until very cold. Fill a glass with ice and pour the cold drink over the ice. Garnish with orange and lime wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
I recommend using a 100% juice cranberry cocktail. You will not need or want additional sweeteners in this drink. I used Milagro silver tequila in this drink, it is made from blue agave and it combines very well.
