An easy margarita recipe that is a crowd please. This cranberry margarita is a tart but sweet twist on a classic margarita. Cranberry Margaritas

It’s 5 o’clock some where so let’s whip up some cranberry margaritas. Now we all may know by now margaritas are one of my favorite drinks but I tend to only make them at home in the Summer time. Well I am changing that by adding cranberry to my go to margarita recipe will help bring it from Summer to the rest of the year. Love margaritas? Also try these Christmas Margaritas and a White Christmas Margarita!

Now some may think a cranberry margarita is perfect for Christmas. Well that’s because it is a great Christmas cocktail but being from Massachusetts we love cranberry year round. So with Valentine’s Day around the corner why not make a festive red margarita?!

Looking for another festive cocktail? Here are 14 other cranberry cocktails. Try a poinsettia or a pomegranate prosecco cocktail

A tart and sweet cranberry spin on a classic margarita.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 4 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz triple sec or orange liqueur
  • 2 oz Tequila (I prefer clear)
  • Top with frozen cranberries, slice of lime over


  1. Add all ingredients to your martini shaker. Tip if you don't have a shaker a mason jar works just fine if you strain the ice. Make sure the covers on tight and shake it! Up, down and all around.
  2. Now pour into a glass over ice and top with frozen cranberries and a slice of lime.

Salt or Sugar?

Now this is all about personal preference. I am a sugar or nothing girl when it comes to my margaritas. If salt even touches the rim I just can’t do it. Want to be fancy and impress your friends? Get a glass rimmer.

On the Rocks or Frozen?

I love a good margarita on the rocks. It just goes down faster and smooth. But on a 90 degree day I will get out my blender and make a frozen margarita to have on the patio. 

Silver Tequila or Gold?

For me the only answer is silver tequila and I can be picky. My favorite 3 silver tequilas are

  1. Hornitos
  2. Espolòn

  3. Patron Silver
