Santa’s Cocktail

Christmas is a time to be festive and serve great food and cool cocktails.  Throw the diets out the door and whip up some cocktails that Santa would serve!  The Chew (Clinton Kelly my favorite!) served some great looking cherry margaritas today that I thought you would like.  xoxo

Ingredients
Cherry Margarita:
2.5 ounces silver tequila
1.25 ounces orange liqueur
1 ounce fresh lime juice (plus extra for rim)
2 ounces tart cherry juice
2 tablespoons Kosher salt (for glass rim)
lime wedges (to garnish)

Directions

For the Cherry Margarita: Dip the rims of the glasses in lime juice and then dip in salt. Fill glasses with ice and set aside.
To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, simple syrup, and cherry juice. Cover and shake until fully combined. Strain mixture evenly between prepared glasses. Garnish with lime wedge and serve.
Tip: For a tasty twist, try this margarita with pomegranate juice instead of tart cherry!
