½ cup plus 2 T cranberry juice
¼ cup sugar
¾ cup fresh frozen cranberries, rinsed
3 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
4 oz. vodka
3 oz. Grand Marnier
Pour all ingredients into the pitcher of a blender. Fill pitcher with ice. Blend until smooth. Add cranberry syrup from sugared cranberries to thin to desired consistency. Use extra cranberry juice if you have no syrup.
Pour into a sugar rimmed glass & enjoy! Serve with Sugared Cranberries at your next cocktail party or holiday dinner.
Substitute tequila for vodka to make a Frozen Cranberry Margarita.
( I would have posted a recipe Thursday or Friday of this week, but seeing how this is the perfect cocktail for your Thanksgiving festivities, I thought you might need the recipe early. Enjoy!)
