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.

1/4 ounce fresh lime juice
