Cranberry Margarita Floats
This year, my Christmas gift to you is the following recipe. You might say that the cranberry sorbet recipe I posted several weeks ago is the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve put a couple scoops in a wine glass and poured Prosecco or champagne over it (which is to die for, by the way), but then I wanted to get really festive and made these cranberry margarita floats.
I used Anne’s tried-and-true margarita recipe (also to die for), but poured it over that unbelievable cranberry sorbet and the result was nothing short of a Christmas miracle. If you have your own favorite margarita on the rocks recipe, definitely try that over our sorbet for a little holiday fun. If not, use ours! It’s delicious. But I beg you to give these cranberry margarita floats a try. They will fill your soul with a couple scoops of holiday cheer!
This holiday cocktail is seasonal, delicious and the perfect balance of sweet and tart. I like to make a big batch of cranberry sorbet and serve it for dessert, then use the rest for seasonal cocktails.
