Quick & Easy margarita made from scratch-no sugary mixes!
I’m all about simple drink recipes. I actually don’t have a signature drink because I love to try new cocktails. In college, I was always a whiskey diet girl, but now I love tequila. And wine. Okay, I’m not picky after a day with 3 kiddos. Since citrus is in season, it’s a great time to add fresh squeezed orange and lime juice!
You thought slushies were just for kids, didn’t you?! NO WAY JOSE! This quick drink recipe uses 100% Pom juice and fresh squeezed juice. Nothing is worse than getting a margarita at a restaurant that is full of super tart limeade. This one is light and refreshing…but beware, they are ADDICTING!
For margaritas, I like to make them with a slushie consistency. It’s like a combination of a frozen and a rocks drink! If it ends up too tart for your liking, just add a touch of agave or sugar.
- 1 lime , 1/2 juiced, 1/2 sliced for garnish
- 1 orange , juiced
- 1/4 cup100% Pomegranate Juice
- 4 ounces Tequila , of choice
- Ice- 2 cups
In a blender, add lime and orange juice, pomegranate juice and ice. Blend until smooth.
Pour 2 ounces tequila in each glass.
Add blender mixture and garnish with a lime.
Optional: sprinkle with salt
Have fun with different flavors of Pomegranate juice! To make as a rocks drink, use less ice and don't blend.
I love to use the Pom Wonderful juices in various flavors. There’s coconut, pineapple, blueberry and more. They always have coupons and I pair them with a sale! As far as tequila goes, use whatever you prefer. We tend to get the Margaritaville Gold. It’s reasonably priced and super tasty!
