Red is Margarita’s favorite color
Every day can be Margarita Day if you mix up this Red Berry Margarita!
We have never met a margarita that we don’t like, but this Ultimate Red Berry Margarita is one you’ll fall head over heels for! It’s becoming a contender for one of our best flavored Margaritas yet.
Now, we couldn’t call this an Ultimate Margarita recipe without a good blend of liquors. For this recipe, we decided to use Patrón Silver Tequila, Cointreau, and Chambord; to which we added a mixture of cranberry and lime juices and our homemade Red Berry Simple Syrup.
The Red Berry Simple Syrup is the star of the show in this margarita recipe. It’s a delicious combination of strawberries, cranberries, and raspberries that is super easy to make.
Once you mix it together with the Patrón, Cointreau, and Chambord, you’ll understand why we really love this Red Berry Margarita!
Frozen cocktails are not everyone’s shot of whiskey. Some people like their margaritas on the rocks. We did this margarita over crushed ice, to give it the illusion of a frozen cocktail without having to break out the old blender.
This is how you make an Ultimate Red Berry Margarita!
