Christmas in August Margarita

Kerry Grant
In my quest to find other uses for my Diet cranberry juice and coconut milk, I came across this recipe from The Spruce Eats and decided to de-carb it. I substituted the orange liqueur with my sugar-free triple sec and tried it with some reposado tequila as a variation on blanco. I liked it so much I'm putting it in my recipe.
It was so good I couldn't save the recipe until the holidays, so I decided to publish it now as my Christmas in August Margarita. It will be just as good for Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa, or any holiday you celebrate during winter, but now you can have it a few months early.
Don't get me wrong; I'll still be drinking this in December...
