The Cranberry Kiss cocktail takes your traditional margarita recipe and adds to it pure cranberry juice and a vanilla note. Pure cranberry juice that’s not diluted with other fruit juices is pretty tart, which is why you need the vanilla simple syrup (or a vanilla liqueur will work, too).
The blend of cranberry and vanilla alone is pretty delicious – add to it the strong hints of lime and orange in this recipe, and you get a wonderful blend of tart, sweet and mellow.
