Stir up a pitcher of these rosy margaritas for your next holiday bash. The Simple Syrup recipe makes enough syrup for 30 margaritas but is easily halved or quartered.


  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup triple sec (or other orange liqueur)
  • 3 tablespoons Simple Syrup
  • Ice
  • Coarse sugar for rimming (optional)


  1. Combine cranberry and lime juices, tequila, triple sec and Simple Syrup. Stir well to combine. Serve over ice in glasses rimmed with coarse sugar or salt, if desired.

Simple Syrup


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and water. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil. Transfer to a heat-proof pitcher and refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes. (Can be made ahead. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 months.) Makes 2 cups.
