This one's short, simple, sweet, and delicious. What we're drinking this week is a variation of the traditional margarita on the rocks, substituting cranberry cocktail for most of the sweet and sour. We're using Fresh and Easy's cranberry cocktail, which has no added colors, so ours comes out pink. If you use Ocean Spray's, it comes out redder. If you want a really red drink, add a splash of grenadine.
INGREDIENTS - two drinks
2 1/2 oz. tequila
1 1/2 oz. triple sec
juice of one small lime
1 oz. sweet and sour
3 - 4 oz. cranberry cocktail
Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker half filled with ice. Shake and strain into margarita or cocktail glasses.
We don't salt the rims on these and the final tally is about 200 calories.
