New Years Eve Party Drink; Cranberry Margarita

Mmmm... Betty Crocker! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! Betty Crocker was one of my first 'real' cookbooks, one I wouldn't be without and one that I've bought numerous copies of over the last 20 years to give as bridal shower and wedding gifts. About 5 years ago I even bought three copies of the special Christmas Cookie cookbook to give to my kids when they get married, as it's been a tradition in our home each holiday season to sit and gaze at the pages and pages of cookies and gingerbread house and bars and the children would call out "I get this one!" "I want that one!" "I get this one!" and 'call dibs' on the photos of 'their' cookies. Yes, Betty Crocker is a staple at our home and this drink idea in their latest newsletter is no exception. Copying here for my own personal use, I can't wait to make these and wish I was having a New Years Eve party just so I'd have an excuse to serve them! They are so pretty and festive!
