Pomegranate Margaritas #ChristmasWeek

I love having a fun cocktail for entertaining around the holidays.  It is just so fun and festive to have when you have people over.  To me margaritas just spell fun!  So I decided to put a holiday spin on them, to make them perfect for December.  In case haven’t noticed yet, I have a thing for pomegranate juice (pomegranate mimosas, pomegranate bellinis, pomegranate prosecco) in a cocktail.  Why not use it for a margarita too :)

 Margaritas #ChristmasWeek

Pomegranate margaritas are easy to make.  You can mix up a pitcher of the them in the afternoon, and have it in the fridge ready for when your friends arrive.  It is such a gorgeous color too!  It is very easy to adjust the sweetness as well.  I like my drinks a little on the sweeter side, so I just added a little more simple syrup to mine.  But if you like them tart, don’t add as much…easy!
