Simple Cranberry Margarita




There is a period of time in the spring where living amongst the trees is not as nice as it seems. This is the week when oak trees shed all manner of pollen covered fronds onto my patio and I spent a few hours yesterday sweeping and picking up the mess. My reward was this sparkling Cranberry Margarita that was so perfectly refreshing as I sat outside for the first time this season. This margarita has only three ingredients and the best thing is that these are ingredients that I always have on hand. So, whenever I am in the mood for a fun, happy hour cocktail this summer, this will be my go to drink.



I decided to serve it in a mason jar with a lot of ice and I think that small touch makes it so pretty. Sometimes it is the smallest touch that can make something simple, extraordinary.


Simple Cranberry Margarita

Using a mason jar or large cocktail glass, wet the rim with a damp paper towel and dip in kosher salt. Add a generous amount of ice to the glass. Add 1/8 cup tequila, 1/2 cup lemon lime soda ( I used Fresca) and 1/2 cup cranberry juice. Mix well and enjoy.
