A Pomegranate-Lime Margarita

Sometimes you need to make a change.  A twist on the classic margarita, this pomegranate-lime margarita is divine. I am a margarita lover, so this post should come as no surprise to my friends.  A classic margarita is delicious, made with fresh lime juice, a good tequila, and nothing artificial added.  But there is lots of room for creativity.

Pomegranate, on the list of superfoods, is a Middle Eastern fruit that proponents claim helps prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, inflammation, and some types of cancers.  Those are big claims.  While I am not 100% convinced such superfruits are indeed this “super,”–or that you get enough in this drink to improve your health–it is a fruit.  And in my world, things that grow tend to be better than things that are manufactured.

The pomegranate season typically runs from October through February.  When selecting pomegranates for eating, you should look for ones that are deep reddish-brown and feel heavy.  Left whole and stored in a refrigerator, pomegranates can last up to 4 weeks.  If you were inspired, you could make your pomegranate juice–but that may be more work than it’s worth, as well as creating a huge mess.  Pomegranate juice can now be found all over the place from fresh to mass-produced, making this cocktail far more accessible than would have been years ago. The sweet, yet tart pomegranate juice works extremely well with the fresh lime juice and is a real palate-pleaser.  As with all margaritas, using a good tequila will substantially increase the taste and enjoyment.

The Pomegranate Margarita brings a burst of color to your glass, showcasing the deep, jewel-like hues of the pomegranate juice. Its taste is a dance of sweet and tart, tempered by the smoothness of premium tequila and the citrusy embrace of lime juice. Each sip is a symphony of taste sensations that leaves you craving for more.

This lovely cocktail is a great addition to any festive holiday gathering. Its bright, invigorating character makes it a true crowd-pleaser that’s sure to become a cherished addition to your cocktail repertoire
