yes, yes, yes, but where . . .

Pirates of the Caribbean have been quoted a lot lately.  When anything is empty, but especially beverages.  Actually, I cannot even say that has been true.  It has been rather random. 

I had seen a recipe for cranberry margaritas recently.  Miss A said she had tried one and that it was too tart.  I just did not think it would need to be.  But then I twisted it to add a large bit of ginger.  The spice came through very subtly.  And I used the last of the tequila in the house. 

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.  But where did all the tequila go?

Served in my second hand glasses, it turned into margaritas that were quite tasty and now in the past.  I guess I will need to be less of a hermit and go shopping.  Oh well.

cranberry ginger margaritas

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 cup cranberries (I used frozen)

1/2 cup peeled and sliced ginger


Good tequila (if you do not have a budget, Don Julio 1942 is pretty yummy)


In a medium saucepan, put the sugar, water, cranberries, and ginger.  Bring to a boil.  Turn down to a simmer.  Let simmer for 15 minutes.  Turn off and let the syrup cool.

Margarita proportions are:  1 part Cointreau, 2 parts tequila, 3 parts simple syrup, in this case the cranberry ginger syrup.  Mix in a jar.  Put the lid on and shake up.  Serve over ice.

Quote pirates.
