Easy Cranberry Margaritas
Have you been busy in the kitchen baking and prepping for the Holidays?! I know I sure have! Each day I have been busy making a new Christmas goodie to include on my Holiday tray at Christmas!
When Thanksgiving came around, my hubby and I had already decorated the house for Christmas, bought the kids presents, and got a huge head start on wrapping.
I felt quite confident I would be able to sit back and relax most of December because of that! Well, I was quite wrong because I ended up procrastinating baking and now, I am in crunch time with Christmas next week, oops!
This past weekend, my hubby and I had some time to relax in the afternoon. Chores were done, kids were content, and baking had been pushed off to this week.
My hubby asked if I wanted to have a drink and enjoy the pretty weather on the patio, so of course I obliged!
Can’t beat December in Houston! It was about 60 degrees and sunny, so quite beautiful!
My hubby, aka bartender, went inside and started preparing our drinks. I was expecting one of our go to cocktails, but he surprised me with this Festive Cranberry Margarita!
Not only was it quite pretty and seasonal, but it was so refreshing and delicious!
Tart, but perfectly sweetened, we were able to sip on our drinks, take a few minutes to enjoy the time of year, and decompress from everyday stresses. It was just what the weekend called for and just what I needed!
If you’re looking for a new drink to try out, give this margarita a try!
