1 ¼ cups cranberry juice cocktail, divided
½ cup sugar, divided
1 ½ cups (6 oz) fresh or frozen cranberries
¾ cup fresh lime juice
¾ cup tequila
½ cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
3 cups coarsely crushed ice

In a blender, mix cranberries, cranberry juice, lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, and ice until smooth and slushy. Before pouring into glasses, you must garnish the edge of the glasses. Pour cranberry juice into a shallow bowl; pour sugar onto a plate. Dip rims of glasses into the juice and then the sugar.
