Festive Cranberry Margaritas
Traditionally, margaritas are considered a warm-weather drink, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this delicious and popular cocktail all year long! This holiday-friendly version lends a festive twist with its bright splash of color and a fun, seasonal garnish.

3 oz. tequila
2 oz. Cointreau (or other orange liqueur)

To make cranberry sprig garnish, carefully thread 3 fresh cranberries onto tough rosemary stems. Set aside.
