Cranberry Orange Margaritas


Big Batch (6 glasses)

  • 1 1/2 cups tequila (I use silver)

  • 1/4 cup orange liquor
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, more or less to taste

To make just one drink

  • 1 1/2 - 2 ounces tequila (I use silver)
  • 2 1/2 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce orange liquor
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup, more to taste

For the rim

  • Sea Salt
  • Orange Zest


  1. Combine all ingredients in your pitcher and stir to combine
  2. When ready to serve, salt the rims with orange zest and coarse salt, 4-6 glasses
  3. Add ice cube to each glass and pour the margaritas over the ice
  4. Add orange slices and serve
  5. Salt the rim of your glass with orange zest and sea salt
  6. Combine all the ingredients in your cocktail shaker and fill with ice
  7. Shake until combined and then strain into your glass
  8. Add orange slice and enjoy

Recipe Notes

  • *I prefer to use tart cranberry juice with no added sugar and sweeten lightly with maple syrup. You can start with a little maple and add more as desired.
  • **Adjust tequila to your desired amount (maybe you'll want a little more or less depending on your crowd)
  • ***Place a little of the juice from the orange on a plate and dip your glass into it before salting the rim, this helps it stick!
