This spiced cranberry margarita is my come-back to the food blog world! That’s right; I took a hiatus from Eat. Love. Namaste. to work on my children’s books and other cool things. I am happy to be back, though, because I made some delicious recipes during my almost 2 years break (yikes) and cannot wait to share them here with all of you! To celebrate, I wanted to share my simple and flavorful spiced cranberry margarita! It’s quick, easy, tasty, and perfect for toasting during the holidays! Or, any happy hour, really…Cheers!
With the holidays right around the corner, cranberries were on my mind, so instead of making plain old simple syrup for margaritas, I decided to throw some fresh cranberries and spices into the saucepan. When the water starts to boil, the cranberries break down, and their juices emerge into the sugar water. To spice it up a little, I threw in some cinnamon sticks, ginger, and orange peels. After about 5 minutes or so, we have ourselves some perfectly spiced and juicy simple syrup.
If you are not a Tequila and Cointreau fan, the simple syrup will pair nicely with Vodka and soda water! It’s that good!! If you are a margarita lover like me, then you will love this Spiced Cranberry Margarita! It’s quick to make, simple ingredients, holiday-inspired, and super delicious! We love to use our scotch glasses like these but feel free to use regular margarita glasses. Cheers friends!Print
