Cointreau Berry Margarita

The blogger behind House of Harper shares her recipe.

When Houstonian lifestyle expert Caroline Harper Knapp headed to Dallas to host The Art of La Soirée and celebrate margaritas (what else?) with Cointreau, we knew we had to snag a few tips from the home maven. “Like Cointreau, I believe that there is an art to entertaining with handcrafted cocktails at the forefront,” Knapp said. “When I entertain at home, whether with close friends or family, I love to craft fresh cocktails with seasonal ingredients to lend a personal touch and set the tone for a curated evening.”
Those who have made their fair share of margaritas know that the ingredients aren’t complicated. The hardest part is, well, the parts —  making sure the ratios complement each piece of the cocktail puzzle. So, Knapp, the blogger behind House of Harper (houseofharper.com) shared with us her recipe for a Berry Margarita using her triple sec of choice.
