I love making homemade Margaritas, and since last year I’ve started a new tradition of making a special Pomegranate & Clementine Margaritas. When you think of the Holidays, the flavours of Pomegranate and Clementines are definitely up there.
For this recipe you will need to prepare a simple syrup and squeeze fresh citrus juice like Lemons, Limes and Clementines. Simple syrup like it’s name is …d-uh simple. I was shocked that one of my bff’s buys simple simple syrup premade. This drink is garnished with Pomegranate seeds.
Pomegranates are easy to peel, if you want a mess free way to peel and separate the seeds here’s a link to a mess free way to peel and store these seeds. Cheers to a safe and love filled season!
