We are testing this one out as a possible cocktail for Thanksgiving.  Hopefully it tastes as good as it sounds.  It takes a little prep time, but the cranberry jelly can be made up to a week ahead.Cranberry Margarita


  • 1 cup fresh (or frozen) cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbs orange juice
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 4 ounces orange juice
  • 6 ounces tequila
  • 1 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper


  • Make cranberry jelly by combining the cranberries, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water and 2 Tbs orange juice in a saucepan.  heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until thick and jammy.  Add orange zest and chill.
  • Mix the salt, sugar, cloves, cinnamon and pepper on a flat dish.  Wet the rim of your glasses with lime juice, and dip the rims into the salt mixture to "salt" the rims.
  • For each cocktail, combine ½ oz. lime juice, 1 oz. orange juice, 1½ oz. tequila, and 3 Tbs cranberry jam in a cocktail shaker; fill with ice. Cover and shake. Strain into prepared glass.
  • Enjoy
