RECIPE: Pink Margarita

Think pink for Mother’s Day, with this pink Margarita from Ocean Spray (photo #1).

Technically, it’s a Margarita-Cosmopolitan fusion: It combines the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and salt rim of a Margarita with the cranberry juice of a Cosmo.

The drink is pink because it uses Ocean Spray’s pink cranberry juice (photo #2). Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients Per Drink

  • 1 ounce tequila
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 2 ounces Ocean Spray Pink Cranberry Juice Cocktail
  • Salt, for rim (see below)
  • Optional: 3 Ocean Spray Fresh or Frozen Cranberries
  • Ice cubes

    1. RIM a rocks glass with salt and fill with ice.

    2. ADD all liquid ingredients to a shaker, shake hard and strain into rocks glass. Garnish with three fresh or frozen cranberries.

    NOTE: Raw cranberries are inedibly sour. We suggest using raspberries instead, and sparing people the possible experience of biting into a cranberry. Pomegranate arils are another option, but they don’t float.

    1. ADD some water to a saucer. In another saucer, add some salt.

    2. DIP the rim of the glass in the water to coat, then twist in the salt dish to create the rim.
