Cocktails – Cranberry Margarita

Cranberry Margarita

Let’s face it, cocktails play a big part of the holiday season, and we aren’t complaining about that one bit!  Whether you are hosting a party or just need to indulge on your own to relax during this busy time, sometimes you just need a drink!

It’s easy to go with the usual egg nog, or even a glass of wine, but if you are up for trying something fun yet festive at your next soiree, try this for a spin!  My family has a tradition of making cranberry margaritas for both Thanksgiving and Christmas (hey, we like to have a little fun, alright?) so I thought I would share the recipe!
