The Perfect Pomegranate Margarita
Last Saturday, down on Olvera Street I had a delightful Pomegranate Margarita. It was blended and the most beautiful pink color. Normally I prefer my margs on the rocks, but this was so pretty. It had about 15 pomegranate seeds as garnish too.
Below is my darn good marg recipe. To it you could add a splash of POM or use a combo of reg. silver tequila and some of the really fun Pomegranate infused tequila made by LA PINTA.
1 shot of silver tequila (Patron or Siete Leguas) or 1/2 and 1/2 La Pinta
1/2 shot of Grand Marnier
1 shot of frozen lime-aid (Minute Made or any other)
1 shot of chilled water
*** if you like it strong you can add 1/4 shot of La Pinta (rather than doing half and half) also in that case you might not need the Grand Marinier. Experiment!
Shake, Stir, Mix. Blend if you like. If you blend, make enough for at least two and used crushed ice so you have enough volume for the blender.
