Notes

LoSalt is a one-for-one substitute, meaning that if a recipe calls for one teaspoon of salt, use one teaspoon of LoSalt.

Recipe by Danielle Marullo, foodista and blogger behind Got Room for More.

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh lime juice
  • ¼ - ¾ Teaspoon salt, such as LoSalt (depending on your glass size)
  • 2 sage leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1 ½ Ounce silver tequila
  • 1 Ounce cranberry juice
  • ¾ Ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 Ounce Combier (or any type of Triple Sec)
  • 1/4 Ounce agave nectar
  • 3-4 fresh cranberries

Directions

Wet the outside of the glass with a wedge of fresh lime.

Roll the edge of the glass in salt or LoSalt. Set glass aside.

Muddle the sage leaves and fresh cranberries into the tequila in a cocktail muddler or glass.

Pour the cranberry juice, lemon juice, Combier, agave and the muddled tequila mixture into a shaker.

Shake all of the ingredients together vigorously.

Fill the salt-rimmed glass with ice and strain the margarita mixture into the glass.

Garnish with fresh sage leaves and float a few fresh cranberries on top (you can freeze them so they keep your drink extra cold!)

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
