Cheers To Cranberry Margaritas

Cheers to a twist on the boring margarita, what a way to bring in the season:

To make the margaritas, fill a cocktail shaker with ice; combine the cranberry juice, tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice and shake. Then strain the margarita mixture into some glasses full of ice, and start sipping.

If you’re feeling particularly festive, you can garnish the drink with thinly sliced limes, fresh cranberries or a small ornament threaded with a skewer. To make the sugar rim, just run a wedge of lime around the edge of your glass, and dip it into a saucer of sugar. Because it’s pretty. Because everyone’s healthy.
