Holiday Cheer!

If you’re searching for that last-minute holiday party drink idea, you might try this one.  Holiday Cranberry Margaritas!

Cranberry Margarita


It’s a very easy recipe with a little bit of preparation.

Cranberry Margarita recipe:

  • 1 1/2 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
  • 3-4 oz. cranberry puree
  • Shake in cocktail shaker with ice and strain into cocktail glass
  • Garnish with candied cranberries

For the cranberry puree, just take a cup of orange juice and a cup of sugar…simmer over medium heat to dissolve sugar.  Add 1 package of fresh cranberries and heat for about 10 minutes.   Let cool and then use a blender to puree cranberry mixture.  Strain through a mesh strainer to remove larger cranberry pieces.

For the cranberry garnish, take a package of fresh cranberries, skewer a handful of cranberries with a wooden skewer.  Then, roll cranberry stick in light Karo Syrup and then sugar.  Then place them in freezer to firm up.






Happy Holidays!!!

Just a couple of things to share that made me laugh during this hectic holiday season.  First was the fortune that I received in my cookie after a Chinese food dinner:

I don’t know about something wonderful happy-ing…but it did make me smile.

Then, while we were fighting through the shopping crowds this past weekend, we passed by a mannequin in Macy’s that seemed to be a little off:

Someone was either in a hurry or this mannequin has been having some “holiday fun” after the store closes and barely made it back to her spot at opening time!

Last Thursday night we had a great time putting on the Greater Boerne Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours Mixer…which we refer to as our Holiday Preview Party.  It gives us a chance to invite fellow local businesses, family, friends & customers for an evening of great food, drinks & music as we gear up for the coming holidays.  Everything is provided by Bear Moon Bakery & Cafe as a “Welcome To The Holiday Season” Party for the entire community.  There’s also an early visit by St. Nick!

We had great food, desserts, Real Ale beer on tap &  Sparkling Drunken Cranberry Cocktails.  We also had musician John Boyd provide an eclectic mix of great music for the event.
