In a few hours, our friends will be arriving for a casual Sunday night dinner. We'll be setting up a taco bar with all the fixings including homemade guacamole. But before I start preparing for the meal I wanted to get a jump on this batch cocktail so that it's ready for our guests as soon as they arrive (I also needed time for this blog post!). I love how it turned out! It tastes fantastic and is very festive - just perfect for entertaining through the holidays.

Start with washing and then slicing about 7 limes in half, and washing your mint leaves.
Muddle half a package of mint leaves with ½ a cup of sugar and ½ a bottle of tequila. Muddle until the mint begins to break apart and the tequila turns green. Strain the tequila mixture into a pitcher to catch the mint leaves.
Squeeze all the limes and add the juice to the pitcher. Slice another 3 limes into thin wheels for garnish. Stir well.
Add 2 cups of whole, uncooked cranberries and 24 ounces of cranberry juice, as well as the rest of the tequila. Stir well, then add the remaining mint leaves.
