The fact Cinco De Mayo ended up on Taco Tuesday blows my mind! All the beaches in Brunswick County may not be open yet and the weather is a little yucky today, but you can enjoy my favorite margarita recipe while lounging around the house!
A FIESTA FOR YOUR MOUTH
Whip up your favorite tacos, hard or soft shell and enjoy the refreshing flavors of lime juice and pomegranate together! Don't feel like cooking or making your own margarita mix, then save this recipe and order from Mini Jalapeno in Holden Beach and pick up your premade margarita
mix for Cinco de Mayo!
NIKI'S SOON-TO-BE-FAMOUS POMEGRANATE MARGARITA
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest, (1 large lime)
1 ounce fresh lime juice
2 ounces Jose Cuervo
2 ounces pomegranate juice
3/4 ounce triple sec
Lime wheel, for garnish
Lime wedge, to rim glass
In a small bowl, combine sugar and lime zest. Use your fingertips to rub the sugar and lime together to help release the citrus oils, then spread it out on a plate
Use a lime wedge to trace the rim of your glass (or dip it in lime juice) and then press it into the sugar until the rim is well coated.
Carefully scoop ice into the glass (so you don't knock off the sugar)
Use a cocktail shaker or two glasses, filled with ice, add lime juice, my old boyfriend Jose Cuervo (tequila), pomegranate juice, triple sec, and strain into your glass, garnish with mint, lime, or an orange!
Add your favorite guacamole and chips and salsa and ENJOY!
