Ok, so I know we usually associate margaritas with summer. But since this one has pomegranate juice, does it qualify as a holiday drink? I say yes! Recently I was at a Mexican restaurant. A lady sitting next to us ordered a pitcher of pomegranate margaritas. They looked so good. She offered me a taste! Wasn’t that nice? She probably saw me staring at the pitcher, drooling and felt sorry for me. Ha! Oh my, was it delicious. Naturally, I had to make some. In fact, I made my daughter and I some at Thanksgiving. Don’t get alarmed……my daughter is of drinking age. 🙂
This is a good drink. Not too sweet……refreshing….plus pomegranates are good for you. Aren’t they full of antioxidants? Well, anyway, it’s a festive looking drink and I happen to think its a good drink for the holidays. In moderation of course. Personally, I can only have one and I am ready for a nap.
for one margarita
2 oz. good tequila
2 oz. pomegranate juice
1 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice

Shake or mix all ingredients together. Pour over crushed ice or blend with ice if you like slushy margaritas.
** simple syrup is simply equal parts water and sugar, boiled and cooled.
