Easy, quick and always a hit, these Margaritas are the real thing. The number one rule here is: No Mix. They're better this way-by far! They're also a great way to jumpstart any party. You can serve them on the rocks or blended, whichever way you prefer. One blender-full serves four.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place tequila, Controy, limejuice and cranberry juice in blender.
  2. Fill until almost full with crushed ice. Shake well or blend until very slushy.
  3. Wet rim of martini or Margarita glass with water and swirl in small dish of salt.
  4. Pour Margarita into the glass. Ole and Feliz Navidad!

This margarita has a great taste but we found it a bit too tart. Another time, I'll reduce the lime juice. Thanks Mike :)

Very nice! I used Cointreau for the orange liqueur. The cranberry juice made a nice change from our usual and added a good flavor to these margaritas. I will be using this recipe again! Thank you for sharing, Mike #2!

Mmmmmm! Yum! I used Triple Sec as it was what I had on hand. Served on the rocks. Thanks for this excellent recipe!
