Love this deep red Cherry Margarita. Perfect for summer brides when cherries are in season. A little bit of work, but oh so good for your wedding signature drink or for rehearsal dinners or showers. The deep red will keep your guests coming back for more. How can you make it? Here's the recipe from Vianney Rodriguez/Sweet Life:

Cherry Margarita

makes 4 margaritas
lime wedges
1 cup tequila
1 cup fresh cherry juice, about  1   1/2 cups of fresh cherries
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup Cointreau
ice cubes
On a small plate spread salt.  With lime wedges moisten rim of 6 ounce glasses. 
Dip glasses into salt.   Place glasses into freezer to chill.
In a pitcher combine tequila, cherry juice, lime juice and Cointreau. 
Remove glasses from freezer and serve margarita mixture over ice.
Garnish with lime slices.

So if you love cherries and are looking for a margarita that not just any hostess is serving, try this crowd pleaser. Just be sure to buy yourself a cherry pitter, otherwise you are going to go insane pitting the fresh cherries.
