Happy Hour: Frozen Cranberry Margaritos

Yum, Who wants to join me for Happy Hour!? This one is compliments of Southern Living.


Prep: 5 min. A mojito traditionally uses rum; here we use tequila instead, hence the fun title. Dip rims of glasses in lime juice and a mixture of equal parts kosher salt and sugar for a twist on salt-rimmed glasses.

Makes 5 cups

1 (10-oz.) can frozen mojito mix
3/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a blender. Fill blender with ice to 5-cup level, and process until smooth. Serve immediately.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Triple Sec for orange liqueur.
