Did you miss out on Sunday Funday and Cinco de Mayo this weekend? No worries – today is Margarita Monday (that has to be a thing right?) and I’ve got a quick, easy, and super tasty 3 ingredient margarita recipe to share with you.
Necessity is the mother of invention right? Well I always have tequila on hand, but I don’t always have everything to put together a proper margarita. But recently I realized that I had three things on hand that would make a tasty and easy drink – tequila, lime juice, and cranberry juice.
During the holidays I make a orange cranberry margarita that is TO DIE FOR (just ask my friends) and this reminds me of a simpler version of that. The everyday version if you will. For this cocktail I used Ocean Spray Whole Berry cranberry juice. It is amazing and has a great cranberry flavor without all the added “junk,” but you could totally use a cranberry juice cocktail or whatever you happen to have on hand. This is what I had on hand and it worked perfectly.
When I say this recipe is simple I’m not kidding. Throw all the ingredients in a shaker with ice, SHAKE, and pour. That is it! If you wanna get fancy you could use a mixture of sugar and salt on the rim and add a lime wedge.
