Fast, Delicious Pomegranate Margaritas

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

We love a good margarita at DIY Lounge, but making them at home can be such a drag sometimes.  The neon yellow margarita mix you buy at most liquor stores tastes fake and making margaritas from scratch is an awful lot of effort (lime squeezing), which is both messy and time consuming.  This recipe is for those folks who love a margarita, but want it quick with no artificial flavors.

Have you heard of the Freshies line of mixers?  They are all natural cocktail mixers that taste great and are affordable too.  Most liquor stores carry them, but if yours doesn’t you can order their products online.  We’re adding a twist to our margaritas by mixing in some pomegranate juice.  Check out how fast and delicious this is.

Pomegranate Margarita:

1 cup of tequila
2 1/2 cup of Freshies Margarita Mix (add more or less mix depending on your personal taste)
1/2 cup of pomegranate juice

1 lime
Margarita salt for rim (optional)
Small glass pitcher

Pour first three ingredients into a small glass pitcher and mix.
Cut a lime wedge and rub on the rim of glasses.  Dip glasses in salt (if desired).  Garnish with lime wedge.  Pour yourself a delicious pomegranate margarita!
