Cranberry Margaritas – the perfect holiday cocktail! These festive cocktails are made from only a few ingredients and are so easy. Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas!
I also have a Frozen Cranberry Margarita that is delicious and it starts with canned cranberry sauce!
The big day is this week!
Is your table set? Are you ready?!
I am definitely not and I’ll probably be up most nights this week. But that’s part of the fun, right? I enjoy the hectic Thanksgiving rush!
I also enjoy a good cocktail on Thanksgiving and I’ll be making these Cranberry Margaritas at some point tomorrow!
- Fresh cranberries
- Cranberry juice
- Orange liqueur
- Fresh lime juice
- Fresh orange juice
- Simple syrup
- Mix all ingredients. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until mostly smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher.
- Serve. Serve over ice with fresh cranberries to garnish.
How To Make Simple Syrup
Homemade simple syrup is so easy to make! It is just equal parts water and granulated sugar.
So, put 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar over low heat in a small saucepan. Stir it until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is slightly syrup.
Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
I’m kind of lazy when it comes to simple syrup so I usually buy mine.
Can You Make It Ahead?
You can make these Cranberry Margaritas the morning of or the night before by just mixing everything together and storing them in a pitcher in the fridge.
When you are ready to serve them, pour over ice and garnish with fresh cranberries.
