Pomegranate Margarita

I tasted this drink, while visiting family in California, over Thanksgiving holiday. It was good, but it was missing something. I decided to make again when I got home. In California, I remember it being a pretty, pale, ballerina pink. This drink is now an extraordinary shade of pink. It is the color of the inside of a watermelon, and as delicious as it looks.

Pomegranate Margarita Ingredients

I really enjoy eating pomegranate seeds, and they are so healthy for you, but they are so messy, so I don’t eat them very often.

Pomegranate Seeds and Juice

I used a potato masher to juice some seeds, then I strained the juice. Next time I will get some organic pomegranate juice from the store, and not bother with juicing the seeds. I added a half a handful of pomegranate seeds to the glass, after I poured the drink. I was happy I added them, because they were so yummy to snack on when I finished the drink.
