Easy Cranberry-Raspberry Margarita

I'm not a drinker.  I don't like wine, beer, or any of the "regulars" most people would go for, so I maybe have 3 drinks a year.

My therapist (who I've been seeing for postpartum depression) told me that I should find some kind of alcoholic drink that I like from time to time to help calm me down when I'm anxious.  I didn't even know where to start, since I have almost zero experience, so she sent me to the store to buy a bottle of Skinnygirl Margarita.

I tried it straight (since it has everything you'd need in one bottle), but it was way too strong for me.  Travis and I have been making sparkling berry drinks (using juice and tonic water), so we had some Raspberry Cranberry juice in the refrigerator.  I decided to add a little of the juice to the margarita, and bam!  I'm in love.

It's sweet, sour, and diluted enough that I can both "complete my homework" AND enjoy it.

Here's what you need...

3 oz Skinnygirl Margarita
3 oz juice (I used Raspberry Cranberry juice)

Just pour the two over ice, swirl, and enjoy!

It'll be perfect for a warm summer day...if we ever get one of those here in Boston!
