Meyer Lemon Pomegranate Margarita

Celebrate National Margarita Day or Cinco de Mayo with a Meyer lemon pomegranate margarita.

 

Margaritas make me think of warm weather, more than any other drink. Also, it’s the only way I drink tequila now – I put away my tequila shots once I left college.

I know I have been sharing a lot of cocktails with you the last few months – I hope you don’t mind. Don’t worry, there will be some non alcoholic beverages shared here soon. But in the meantime, make a margarita.

Meyer Lemon and Pomegranate Margarita

I made a meyer lemon simple syrup for this margarita and it is very easy to make yourself. Start there (the instructions are in the recipe.) Once your simple syrup has cooled down, you can mix up a few margaritas.

The pomegranate portion is going to come in the form of pomegranate liqueur and pomegranate seeds as garnish. You can eat them if you like – totally up to you. Some antioxidants with your tequila sounds like a plan to me.

I added a little lime juice because I wanted a little of that specific sour taste you can only get from limes. Feel free to substitute more meyer lemon juice instead if you don’t feel like buying limes.

Aw thanks Dini! I like to thank the pomegranate... but that's probably because I like pomegranate so much!
