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.
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.
