Red cold summer cocktail drink

Tequila Blast Margarita

This time of year, I can’t resist mixing up my personal holiday twist on the margarita. Instead of lime juice, I use cranberry juice, which gives the drink a festive red hue. Each serving has only 230 calories. Cheers!


– 3 Ounces 100-Percent Agave Tequila
– Splash of Cointreau
– Splash of Cranberry Juice
– Lime Wedge, For Garnish


To make it, fill an 8-ounce rocks glass with ice. Next, fill the glass with 100-percent agave tequila. Add a tiny splash of Cointreau (orange flavored liqueur) and a splash of cranberry juice, then garnish with a lime wedge.
