Cranberry Margaritas

When I think of margaritas I think of summer. Sipping a frozen tart drink on the patio trying to beat off those sun rays. Now I am fighting to be warm with Seattle getting down to about 17 degrees last week. Sipping on a  frozen tart drink was the least from my mind.
What else to warm your bones with a little booze right? My solution for a winter warm up - Cranberry Margaritas! I mentioned making them for Thanksgiving, we made them and it turned out that only 2 of us really liked them so we got the whole pitcher to ourselves. I wasn't complaining.
Cranberry Margaritas:
3 cups cranberry juice
1 1/2 cup fresh lime juice- about 5 pounds of limes
1 1/2 cups tequila
1/2 cup Triple Sec
Ice
Lime wedges
Coarse Salt or Sugar

The key is fresh squeezed Lime juice!  We just combined all the liquids in a large pitcher and stirred. Rimmed the glasses with either salt or sugar depending on preference. Poured in to ice filled glasses with a floater of tequila and a wedge of lime.  It's a very festive color.  enjoy!
