yes please!


Christmas parties are finally here! Yaaa I absolutely love this time of year!  Of course we're all scrambling for the perfect cocktails to serve our guests. Don't sweat it... I think I found a good one for you. Please, make one {or two} and let me know how they taste. Cheers!   



pomegranate margaritas


YIELD: MAKES 1 MARGARITA, IS EASILY MULTIPLIED

TOTAL TIME: 5 MINUTES

ingredients:

2 ounces Grand Marnier
1 1/2 ounces Tequila
2 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounce lime juice
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
coarse salt for the rim
lime + pomegranate arils for garnish

directions:

For simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve, then turn off heat and let cool completely.
Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, pom juice, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in extra lime slices. Add some pomegranate arils for decoration.
[This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone’s tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go from taste. I also suggest buying the lime juice if you plan on making a pitcher (or 2) considering you’d have to squeeze a billion limes to get enough juice.]
