CINCO DE MAYO: Frozen Cranberry Margarita

What does cranberry juice have to do with Mexican cuisine? Nothing: There are no cranberry bogs in Mexico.

But in the name of fusion, you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Frozen Cranberry Margarita. It uses antioxidant-packed unsweetened cranberry juice as a healthy mixer:


• 6 ounces tequila
• 6 ounces orange liqueur (such as Cointreau,
Courvoisier, GranGala, Grand Marnier)
• 8 ounces unsweetened 100% cranberry juice
• 1/2 cup honey
• Pinch salt
• Ice cubes
• Optional garnish: skewered mint leaf bits and dried cranberries
