Sparkling Pomegranate Margarita
But this year, I decided that there was absolutely nothing wrong with popping that cork earlier in the evening. I was in the mood for margaritas, actually. I'd received some samples of Partida tequila and was eager to give them a try. So, I thought, why not combine the two?
Though all of the varieties were nice for their own reasons, I was drawn towards the Añejo to use in the margaritas for its nose of cherries and dried fruit with undertones of chocolate. It would make the perfect partner for the bold pomegranate and silky Licor 43.
- 2 fluid ounces pomegranate juice
- 2 fluid ounces Partida Añejo tequila (or your favorite)
- 1 fluid ounce Licor 43
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
- sparkling wine
- coarse salt
- pomegranate arils
- lime slices
I received some sample bottles of Partida Tequila at no charge, but was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.
