Pomegranate Margarita Martini

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Who said margaritas were just for summer?  

I adore avocados and always have them on hand, but a prominent display at the store last week led me to buy several more than usual. Add in a long work week and my love of margaritas and guacamole (video recipe here) and, next thing you know, I’ve thrown together an impromptu holiday happy hour for two, South-of-the-Border style.

So, if you’re looking for a festive cocktail to celebrate the holidays but aren’t a fan of the bubbly, this may be the drink for you. It’s a variation on two of my classics, The Holiday Diva (a pomegranate martini) and a blackberry margarita martini (“margatini”). Follow the same recipe as The Diva, substituting tequila for the bourbon, and you’re set to enjoy the season, Mexican style.

Because, for some people, nothing says “Happy Holidays!” like tequila.

Or something.
