Serves 1

INGREDIENTS
For The Cocktail
2 ounces silver tequila
1 ounce cointreau (or triple sec or Gran Marnier)
2 ounces cream of coconut
1 lime (juiced)
Ice
Club soda (for topping)


Garnish
Cranberries
Lime Slices
Rosemary Sprigs

Sugar Lime Rim (optional)
Zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of kosher salt

INSTRUCTIONS
To make the sugar lime rim, combine the lime zest, sugar, and salt on a shallow plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of your glasses then dip into the sugar mixture. Fill with ice.

Add the tequila, triple sec, cream of coconut and lime juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into rimmed glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with cranberries, lime wheels and rosemary sprigs. Enjoy!

VARIATIONS
For a little extra holiday flavour, you could add a splash of white cranberry juice. It is still light in colour and has a very soft flavour.

Instead of a sugar lime rim, switch it up with a cinnamon sugar rim.
