Festive Cranberry Margaritas

Mix it up this holiday season with a Cranberry Margarita!  Traditionally, margaritas are considered a warm-weather drink, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this delicious and popular cocktail all year long! This holiday-friendly version lends a festive twist with its bright splash of color and a fun, seasonal garnish.

I love margaritas all year long, but this Cranberry Margarita recipe is my go-to margarita during the holiday season.
