Mix the cranberry juice, tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and agave (if using) together, and taste for sweetness. If needed, add more agave.
Pour the white sugar onto a small rimmed plate. Then, roll in the cranberries in the sugar, tap off the excess, and skewer them (in sets of 3) on toothpicks.
Fill each glass with ice and pour in the margarita. Garnish with the optional sugar-coated fresh cranberries and star anise, serve, and enjoy!
If you're rolling fresh cranberries in sugar, roll them in a honey/water mixture first so that the sugar sticks on. Slightly thawed frozen cranberries should hold onto the sugar on their own.For 1 serving:
