Easy Margarita Recipes

I am a margarita girl. I love easy margarita recipes. When I create cocktail recipes, one of the first things I do try is making easy margarita recipes. Then from there, I develop the cocktail.

Christmas Margarita Recipe

I really wanted to make a Christmas cocktail. So a Christmas margarita recipe was what I decided was needed. I wanted to create cherry juice cocktails rather than cranberry juice cocktail for this Christmas margarita recipe.

Cherry Margarita

I originally just wanted to make a cherry margarita. A friend gave me an idea of adding amaretto to this margarita. She had an amaretto margarita in Vegas and thought that it would be good in cherry juice cocktails.

So I took her idea of the amaretto margarita and combined it with a cherry margarita. The flavor of this Christmas cocktail was amazing! Cherry and amaretto go well together! This Christmas margarita recipe of the Holly Jolly Rita was born!
