cranberry margaritas
4 generous servings

200ml pure cranberry juice
100ml freshly squeezed lime juice (2-3 limes)
150ml tequila
100ml orange flavoured liqueur, like Cointreau or triple sec
2 handfuls ice cubes

Check your pantry to see if you have a large canning jar, which can do double duty as a shaker.

Put the ice cubes, the cranberry juice, lime juice, tequila and orange liqueur in a canning jar, close it tightly and shake for ca. 30 seconds.
Rub a lime quarter around the rim of each glass and press the rim in a plate with salt, so that you end up with a salt rim.

Pour the drink from the canning jar into the glasses through a little sieve to retain the ice cubes.
