Berry Cinnamon Margaritas are a tantalizing and unique take on the classic tequila-based beverage. Recipes usually combine crushed frozen berries with cinnamon syrup, a touch of citrus juice, and your favorite tequila to create a sweet and spicy margarita that serves as the perfect addition to your next party or celebration.
Spiced Simple Syrup Ingredients:
1 c. sugar
1 c. water
2 c. mixed berries, fresh or frozen
1 large orange, use vegetable peeler to remove 3-4 pieces orange peel for syrup (remaining orange can be sliced to be used as garnish or for another use)
5 cinnamon sticks
Additional Ingredients for each Margarita:
2 oz. tequila
1 oz. orange liquor like Triple Sec
½ oz. lime juice
Extra berries, to garnish

Combine sugar, water, cranberries, orange peel, and 5 cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Let the simple syrup simmer for 10 minutes or until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Remove the spiced simple syrup from heat and let cool for at least 30 minutes.
Strain and transfer to a glass jar.
For each Margarita, add tequila, orange liquor, lime juice, 1 ½ oz. spiced simple syrup, and ice to a shaker. Shake vigorously and pour into a glass filled with ice.
