Mistletoe Margaritas

A close up of two mistletoe margaritas with a salted rim and rosemary as a garnish. In the background with a blue bowl of limes, a crystal bowl of fresh cranberries, and a pitcher of the cranberry margaritas on top of a white marble countertop.

These Mistletoe Margaritas are equally tasty as they are easy. The recipe is made in a pitcher so that it can be easily served for holiday parties and crowds.


  • 4 cups cranberry juice
  • 1 1/2 cups tequila blanco
  • 1/2 cup lime juice (or the juice of about 3 medium-large limes)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, for garnish 
  • Additional lime wedges and rosemary sprigs for garnish
  • Salt or sugar for rims


  1. Stir cranberry juice, tequila, and lime juice in a pitcher with ice. Add cranberries and a few lime wedges, which will float for garnish. 
  2. Serve cocktails with a sprig of rosemary, additional lime wedges, and a salt or sugar rim. 


Tip: freeze cranberries in advance and use as “ice cubes” to keep drinks cold
