With holiday entertaining in full swing I wanted to share this tip for easy entertaining. Last week, I shared with you the ease of serving the Jose Cuervo Golden Margarita® at a holiday party. Today, I want to give you the details on how I added a bit of a special touch to make it festive! Presentation is everything, right!?!
We had a great time laughing and catching up at my impromptu happy hour with simple recipes. Everyone loved the beautiful way I served the margaritas. Creating a festive garnish for the ready-to-drink Jose Cuervo Golden Margarita was a fun challenge for me.
The day before, I put two bags of fresh cranberries into the freezer. Using frozen frozen cranberries in a cocktail helps to maintain temperature and not dilute your drink. It’s a pretty garnish with a purpose!
To serve the drinks, I rimmed the glasses in coarse salt (my preference!) by using a fresh orange slice and then dipping the rim in the salt. Next, add a layer of ice, then a few frozen cranberries, fill the glass with ice and finish with a few more frozen cranberries. Pour Jose Cuervo Golden Margarita over the ice and cranberries and top with an orange twist.
I greeted my guests with these delicious drinks at the door on a beautiful silver tray. Serving this ready-to-drink margarita leaves so much more time for enjoying great conversation and time with friends and family. I’ll be serving them again this weekend at a pre-Christmas family gathering. They’ll be great with our traditional tamale dinner on Christmas Eve.
