Christmas cocktail anyone? Bursting with cranberry flavor, this is such a festive margarita, and the honey and orange rim give your taste buds a real treat! It would be rude not to wouldn’t it?!
Preparation time: 5 minutes.
Ingredients: For the rim,1 tablespoon of clear honey, 1 tbsp caster sugar, 1 tbsp fine sea salt, orange zest.
For the cocktail add ice cubes, 50ml tequila, 12½ml lime juice, 12½ml triple sec, 75ml cranberry juice.
Instructions for the rim: First, you must make your sugar, salted rim. On a flat plate, scatter caster sugar, fine sea salt, and the zest of an orange. Now, using an artist’s paintbrush, carefully paint clear honey around the rim of your cocktail glass. Then turn your glass upside down and place it in the mixture and carefully swirl it around until the rim is evenly coated and set aside.
For the cocktail: In a cocktail shaker add ice cubes, silver tequila, fresh lime juice, and triple sec. Then add cranberry juice, secure the lid of your cocktail shaker, and shake vigorously for approximately 20 seconds. Using a Hawthorne strainer, pour your cranberry margarita into your cocktail glass.
Serve your festive cocktail and enjoy!
