Fun Holiday Drink Recipes

Entertaining your family and friends has never been easier and your guests are sure to leave abuzz about drinks such as Marcela’s Warm Winter Margarita, a traditional Mexican recipe passed on to Marcela from her grandmother… an old family recipe that she’d love to share with you.

WARM WINTER MARGARITA : Perfect for a cold day. This drink is full of flavor and makes the tequila blend smoothly.

Ingredients – Serves 4:
3 ½ cups apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
2 cups dried fruit of your choice
2 tbs granulated sugar
4 shot glasses Sauza® Silver Tequila

Combine apple juice and cinnamon in a heavy pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick carefully. Add sugar, dried fruit, and tequila. Mix well. Serve warm.

CRANBERRY MINT MARGARITA:  As families gather for Thanksgiving festivities, cranberries seem to be on everyone’s plate.  So why not have them in your glass as well?

16 oz. cranberry/raspberry juice
8 oz.  lemon/lime soda
6 oz. Sauza® Silver Tequila
8 mint leaves for garnish

Combine all ingredients except mint leaves in a pitcher. Serve over ice and garnish with two mint leaves.
