Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you prefer, you do not need to add the margarita salt to the rim of the glass. 
  • You can omit the cranberries if you prefer. 
  • Want to change the flavor a bit? Try adding mint garnish to the top. 
  • If you are making this for a crowd you will want to use 1 shot of tequila for every 3 ounces of cranberry juice. Be sure to mix it well before pouring and serving. Add ice to each individual cup instead of the entire batch.
