Pomegranate + Orange Margaritas

You guys.

These margaritas are perfect. I am 100% here for them.

I typically prefer my margs to be as straight forward as possible without any extra twists to them. House margarita on the rocks with salt is my go-to order, but I'm willing to spice it up a bit for the holidays.

These Pomegranate + Orange Margaritas check all the boxes. They're sweet, tangy and perfectly balanced. Perfect for your New Year's Eve celebration!

I honestly haven't had the best luck with making my own margaritas in the past. For my birthday celebration a few years ago, I decided to make blackberry lemonade margaritas that I'd never made before. I added a...bit too much tequila and they ended up being incredibly strong. They have since been known as "red tequila," since you could only taste tequila.

But I promise these are perfectly balanced. Swear.

They're super simple to make too! I made mine in a cocktail shaker, but you can stir yours together if you don't have a shaker.

I also just squeezed the orange juice with my hands, but if you have a juicer feel free to use that!

Add the pomegranate juice, juice of 1/2 an orange, tequila and triple sec into the cocktail shaker over ice and shake for 20-30 seconds to aerate the margarita. Take an orange slice and run it along the rim of the glass, and dip the glass in salt (or sugar if you prefer).

Pour the shaken margarita into the salted glass, garnish with an orange slice and enjoy!

Now, let's make 2018 a friggin great year. 🙌
