Cherry Margarita Cocktail Recipe

I can always count on Annie Campbell to create the most delicious and inventive sips, and the theme-perfect one that she provided for our Cherry Party was no exception. Her Cherry Margarita (she had me at Margarita, but sealed the deal with the addition of muddled farmers market cherries) was as pretty as it was yummy, and just the right amount of sour and sweet.
