Cranberry Margaritas + a Giveaway!62 Comments

Cranberry Margaritas
Tis’ the season for holiday parties, and what better way to kick off your own party than with a pitcher of these festive gems. You could even get creative, and instead of white sugar rim it with green. Although that may make for some awkward green teeth/lips situations, but no biggie at least everyone will have it. Hopefully there are not some single friends you are trying to get together.

My sister mixed up a batch of these for Thanksgiving day, and it was the perfect start to a delicious meal. We took the pomegranate margarita recipe that we have and just swapped out the juice. Oh hello deliciousness. Honestly I don’t need a special occasion to drink a margarita so I will be making these many more times. I also love that these fit in perfectly with my favorite time of year.

Since it is my favorite time of year, and the season for giving, I thought it would be a great time to do a giveaway! My wish list has been growing, and on it is a cute, but good rolling pin. I saw this one recommended in one of my magazines, and immediately sent it to Blair for a stocking idea. We are only filling each other’s stockings and exchanging ornaments this year since we consider our new house our present. So I thought it might be fun to share some of the love with you guys. You have the chance to win this adorable rolling pin from Anthropologie. You are going to need it for all of the baking you are going to be doing. See the fine print below to see how to enter:
