Everything's coming of cranberries...

There is something so thrilling about seeing the harvesting of this cranberry bog on a drive on Cape Cod.. It made me want to make everything cranberry. Muffins. Scones, Sauces. Chutney. But, instead, I settled for a Cranberry Margarita.

Seems as though Marilyn had the same idea.  I shot this photo from a large murall at the Chatham Orpheum Theater in Chatham, Massachusetts.(http://www.chathamorpheum.org. I think you'll like the recipe (see below). It's not too tart or too sweet.
