  • 4 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces cranberry simple syrup

Cranberry Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup 100% cranberry juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries

Chili/Sugar Rim Mix

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground chili powder

Drunk Cranberry Skewers

  • 1 cup Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries reserved from simple syrup
  • ½ cup tequila


For the Margarita

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, lemon juice, and cranberry simple syrup. Shake until well combined.
  • Run a lime slice over the rim of 2 Margarita glasses and dip rims in Sugar/Chili Rim Mix
  • Skewer drunken cranberries on long picks and roll in sugar mix to coat cranberries

For the Cranberry Simple Syrup and Drunken Cranberries

  • In a medium sauce pan combine 1 cup cranberry juice, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup Cape Cod Cranberries. Cook over medium heat until very hot but not boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool
  • Strain juice from cranberries using a fine sieve. Pour ½ cup tequila over cranberries and marinate for 15 minutes. The simple syrup and drunk cranberries can be made the day ahead to give cranberries more time to marinate in the tequila and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
