Ingredients for cherry margaritas.

Ingredients for Cherry Margaritas

  • Black Cherry Juice – We used Knudsen which has no added sugar.
  • Silver Tequila – We used Jose Cuervo, Patron is great too.
  • Sprite – or 7UP. Typically margaritas are sweetened with simple syrup but we chose Sprite to be a little less sweet.
  • Triple Sec – Orange liqueur.
  • Lime Slices + Juice
  • Ice
  • Honey – To garnish the rim. Honey holds the salt in place much better than running a lime around the edge of the glass.
  • Black Lava Salt – or coarse salt.

  • Glasses for Margaritas: We used these Coupe Glasses and also love stemless wine glasses for cocktails.
  • Make without a Blender: Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker and pour over crushed ice.
  • Occasions: The deep red color makes these margaritas perfect for holiday celebrations like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, 4th of July or Halloween.
