Recipe: Pink Cadillac Margaritas

These bright, pink margaritas will pair perfectly with your next Tex-Mex menu or Taco Tuesday celebration – but, we don't think you need an excuse to whip up a batch! Made with cranberry juice, fresh lime juice, Triple Sec, and tequila, these pretty cocktails are garnished with a sparkling sugar-and-salt rim. Simply mix the two ingredients in a saucer, dip your margarita glasses in fresh lime juice, and then dunk in the salt-sugar mixture for a pretty drink rim. Instead of using Triple Sec in the recipe, you can also use your favorite orange liqueur, like Cointreau. The addition of a citrus liqueur gives a fresh, tangy flavor to the cocktail. The great thing about this margarita recipe is that you can prepare them before your event or party, and let them sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving. This actually allows the ingredients to blend more thoroughly together, so the margarita recipe tastes more flavorful. Then, when you're ready to serve your Pink Cadillac Margaritas, simply shake the mixture before pouring into individual glasses. If you're looking for an additional garnish, you can also serve up the glasses with a twist of orange zest.
