Sun, Sand, Surf and Frozen Cranberry Margaritas!

Years ago, when we first moved to the upper Midwest from the South I first heard the dark gray, dismal winter sky described as a "mushroom soup sky". That description has always stayed with as it was a perfect way to describe the murkiness of the weather that I've called 'home' for a dozen years now. Seven months out of the year it's cold, dark, gray and snowy. Needless to say by January everyone I know is planning a vacation to 'get away' and find some sunshine.

Of course this has me thinking about seafood, key lime pie and of course, frozen drinks! In honor of all the people who are lucky enough to live in Florida and those lucky enough to be visiting there soon, this recipe is for you!
