Welcome to Day #2 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting today, Monday, December 9th and ending Saturday, December 14th.
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 🙂
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!
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 1 cup Triple Sec
- 1 cup Pomegranate juice
- 3/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 -3/4 cup simple syrup
To make simple syrup combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat to a boil. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, cool.
In a pitcher combine all of the ingredients. Stir until combined.
Pour over ice to serve. Or store over the fridge until ready to serve.
Garnish with lime slices and pomegranate seeds, if desired.
