Libations in the Lakes: Cranberry Margarita

Community By Bruce Lawrence, general manager, Shula's Steak 2 in Miami Lakes Thursday, November 18, 2021

      Our Cranberry Margarita is a festive cocktail that appeals to many tastes.

      It offers the flavors of a traditional margarita with a holiday twist.  

      The colors are appealing to the eye, and it’s easy to serve by changing the garnish to fit your theme. 

      For Thanksgiving, the rosemary sprig works well.

      It’s also a versatile libation: Serve it straight up or over ice.

      Use a lime wedge to moisten the edges of two Margarita glasses and dip the rims into a plate of salt or sugar, your choice.  

      Fill a large shaker or glass with ice.


4 ounces cranberry juice

2.5 ounces silver tequila

1 ounce of Triple Sec

1 ounce orange juice

1 ounce lime juice

     Shake well and strain into the rimmed glasses. 

     Top off with about an ounce of Lemon Lime soda.

     Garnish with the sprig of rosemary or drop an orange slice and a lime slice in the glasses.

     Cheers! And Happy Thanksgiving!
