Sip sip, hooray! A signature Christmas cocktail is a got to this season! Serve these Christmassy Cranberry Margaritas for all your holidays. This festive holiday cocktail is easy to make, easy to garnish and the perfect red color for the holiday!

Christmas Cranberry Margarita

Cranberry is one of the main Christmas flavors. So why not turn your favorite summer margarita into a festive winter cocktail with cranberry juice and a rosemary garnish?

I always enjoy meeting up with friends for a Christmas party at least once during the busy holiday season! With a buffet with all Christmas cookies (this are my favorite) and Christmas appetizersa special signature cocktail is the perfect touch.

I like to make a large batch of these margaritas so it’s easy to swoon guests upon their arrival! Sometimes I call her Mistletoe Margaritas because she’s super cute!

A few simple ingredients!

  • cranberry juice
  • lime juice
  • triple sec
  • Silver Tequila

For the full Christmas Margarita recipe, see the recipe card at the end of the post, but here are a few extra notes on ingredients that I think will be super helpful!

CRANBERRY JUICE: Opt for Cranberry Juice Cocktail (this is what you’ll usually find when you buy standard cranberry juice at the grocery store). Now you can look for 100% pure cranberry juice, but that makes these margaritas way too acidic, trust me! Swap out the cranberry for pomegranate juice, or even a cranberry and pomegranate juice blend if you like!

LIME JUICE: Even though I own bottled lime juice, I try to use freshly squeezed lime juice whenever possible because the taste is just *much* better!

TRIPLE SECOND: You can use any orange liqueur for a similar taste!

WHITE TEQUILA: Also known as silver tequila or blanco tequila, this is a tequila that is bottled right after it is distilled. It is clear in colour.

CRANBERRIES: You can use fresh or frozen cranberries for the perfect garnish.

ROSEMARY BRANCHES: Add a sprig of rosemary to any margarita for a touch of festive greenery!

How to Make a Christmas Margarita

  1. Start by rimming your glasses with salt. If you prefer sugar, do it! Simply pour the salt (or sugar) into a flat plate or bowl. Cut a lime wedge and rub the rim of the glass with it. Dip the glass in the salt to line the rim.
  2. Fill glass with ice.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, mix together the tequila, cranberry juice, triple sec, and lime juice. Shake to combine and pour over ice.
  4. Garnish your margaritas with cranberries and a sprig of rosemary.

For an extra festive touch, you can use sugared cranberries! They look “frosted” so they’re perfect for the Christmas holidays. You can find out how to prepare them here in my recipe for Sugared Cranberry Baked Brie!
