My own personal concoction, one of three that I wrote down in hopes of a good 'Rita. This one, as good as the first, is smooth and very berry!


  1. Moisten rim of margarita or martini glass with some cranberry juice.
  2. Hold glass inverted and dust exterior portion with some granulated sugar so it sticks to the juice on the outside rim.
  3. Add ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and top with tequila, triple sec, and cranberry juice.
  4. Replace lid and shake vigorously.
  5. Pour into prepared glass and serve.
  6. Salud!

I know I can always count on you, Sue, to have the perfect drink for any festive occasion. Your Cranberry Margarita #2 was a hit at our Christmas party. I chose this version because I wanted a more berry flavor and it delivered. I rimmed the glasses in burgundy colored sugar crystals. Looked beautiful and tasted WOW! Smooth and berry-licious. Thanks so much.

I made this as part of a margarita sampler for a party. Very good, pretty color, perfect for Christmas or 4th of July, or anytime!

Wonderful flavor for any occasion. This was quick and easy and hit the spot for a coctail.
