Perfect Christmas Cocktail: the cranberry margarita!

It’s red and sweet like the season, our friend Jen Pinkston from the effortless chic shared this one with us

(Makes 2 Cocktails)

2 limes + 1 for rim

1 C. fresh orange juice

1 C. fresh cranberries + more for garnish

1 C. sugar

1 C. water

2 ounces or 1/4 C. Tequila

2 ice spheres (molds available here)

1/2 C. kosher salt

In a small saucepan, bring sugar, water, and cranberries to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes until the cranberries are breaking open and the liquid is a dark red.  Drain the cranberries from the saucepan and pour the remaining simple syrup into a glass container to cool. This step can be done well in advance as the syrup will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator.
Cut one lime into quarters and use one quarter around the rim of each glass to get it sticky for the salt.  Sprinkle the salt on a flat surface and salt the rim of each glass.
Combine the fresh juice of two limes, orange juice, cranberry simple syrup, and tequila in cocktail shaker and shake.
Place one ice sphere in each salted glass, along with 8-10 fresh cranberries. Add liquid from cocktail shaker and enjoy!

Toast to Type: the perfect mimosa

Ready for brunch?

Make the perfect mimosa for every weekend gathering.

09_25ToastToTypeMimosa

Brunch lovers everywhere just love this drink; citric and refreshing with a dash of old school glam, the mimosa is and always be the queen of brunch drinks {after coffee because we love coffee!}

This is the best way to do it: make sure your champagne flutes are cold, use prosecco instead of champagne because the dryness pairs perfectly with the smoothness of orange juice. The perfect ratio is 1:1 and the trick is to have freshly squeezed OJ {no pulp}.
