A tipple of ginger liqueur adds zip and complexity to this tart cherry riff on a margarita. To prep a batch for friends, add the ingredients to a jar the night before and refrigerate. When cocktail hour arrives you can simply add ice to the jar, stir, and strain the ruby red elixir into glasses.

Cook's Notes

For a clear ruby color, stir (don't shake) this drink.

Use unsweetened 100 percent tart cherry juice in this Margarita for true fruit flavor. Look for it near other shelf-stable juices or in the refrigerated-drink aisle.
