For this week’s Thirsty Thursday theme, we went with… CRANBERRY! Just this week I spotted fresh cranberries at my grocery store so it’s perfect timing.

This Frozen Cranberry Margarita is a great recipe for Thanksgiving or even the day after Thanksgiving because it uses canned cranberry sauce! Weird, right? So if you’re left with an extra can of the stuff, you can definitely do something besides cover a turkey sandwich with it.

Between all the tequila and the tart cranberry sauce, this drink has quite a kick. In a good way! Those frozen margarita mixes can be way sweet so those two together keep the drink from hurting your teeth.
