Pomegrante Margarita

Day 109

Pomegranate Margarita
4 shots out of 5

We had a BBQ last night and I have to say that my Bahama Mama was an absolute hit!  Guys and Girls both liked it, which was nice.  Some even came back for seconds.  I have a feeling that cocktail will be made many time in the future.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  It's a pretty good Margarita.  I found the recipe online and cut back on the amount of tequila I used from the original recipe.......I just couldn't see 2 whole shots of tequila mixed into this margarita.  The first sip was quite......tart.  After the margarita had sit for a little bit, the tartness wasn't so strong and I was able to enjoy it a bit more.  I want to try this margarita with my blueberry pomegranate juice sometime in the future.......maybe with a little less lime juice too.  All in all, it's not a bad cocktail, especially when the tartness calms down a bit.

Here is the recipe for a Pomegranate Margarita:

  • 1 shot pomegranate juice
  • 1 1/2 shots tequila
  • 1/2 shot triple sec
  • 1 shot lime juice

In a blender add 1 cup of ice, pomegranate juice, tequila, triple sec and lime juice.  Blend everything together really well so that there is no trace of ice anywhere.  Pour and enjoy!
