My love for a good margarita is well known. Shaken and on the rocks is my jam. This Pomegranate Margarita is a new favorite. I love the bright red color the pomegranates. And the sweet, tart taste is right up my alley.
Pomegranates have been a staple around here this fall with my Pomegranate Guacamole on big time repeat. My girls love breaking the seeds (or arils) out. Such a fun snack or addition to a salad like this one.
I hope you’ll give them a try this weekend.
