I don’t know about you, but margaritas in any way, shape and form instantly brings me to the beach. So what’s better during the holidays than this Mistletoe Margarita?
At dinner not long ago, I decided to give this cocktail a try. It was so good! Refreshing with just the right touch of sweetness.
The color alone is quite festive and as far as I’m concerned tequila is great any time of the year. Often, holiday cocktails can be on the heavy side. This cocktail is big on flavor, but not as filling as other seasonal options like Eggnog or Hot Buttered Rum.
And as mentioned above, who doesn’t want a reminder of a hot summer day at the beach when there is snow on the ground. Easy to make too and fantastic all year long.

Cranberries or cherries for garnish
