Festive and Refreshing Cranberry Tequila Spritzer

You can’t say this for all seasonal holiday drinks, but this cocktail really is great for any time of the day.

It has the potential to refresh your palate, while delivering a smooth, sweet and familiar holiday flavor you’ll adore.

What Does This Cocktail Pair Well With?

Naturally, cranberry as a flavor has a longstanding history of flirting with just about anything that can make its way onto your holiday dinner plate. Whether you’re sitting down for Christmas or Thanksgiving, you’ll find it pairs sensationally well with turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing.

I always follow the cardinal rule of pairing, which is to pair like things together. Any fruity Christmas desserts will certainly be a welcome match for this bright yet slightly tart treat. The extra addition of a little bit of mint can easily be amplified by muddling before hand, giving this drink even more dimension.

How Should I Serve These Spritzers?

It’s safe to say that a tequila cocktail does its best in a short tumbler style glass. Unique heavy glasses like these make a statement, and help showcase the lavish color of these luxurious drinks.

They’re also wide enough to accommodate your desired garnish, while being comfortable enough to hold on the couch.
