Cranberry orange margarita

You’ve got your turkey, you’ve got your mashed potatoes, you’ve got your sweet potatoes and the pie… but what are you going to drink for Thanksgiving?

Sure, you could stick with wine, champagne or beer. But perhaps I could interest you in a cranberry-orange margarita?

It’s really easy to make, and will complement the cranberry sauce that may or may not be taking over your plate. It would also be good with the appetizers you’re snacking on while watching football. Or while cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday. Whatever works!
