    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!
