Pomegranate Margarita

Pomegranate Margarita is the perfect cocktail for your next summer soiree.  This cocktail mixes PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur, tequila, triple sec, lime juice and simple syrup to create a fruity, light margarita.

I blinked and the July 4th holiday was upon us. How is this even possible?

I swear we were just packing up a moving truck in the 30 degree weather in Chicago and moving to Ohio, and now all of the sudden we are snacking on bruschetta, grilling chicken and steaks, eating fresh farmers market salads and sipping on Pomegranate Margaritas.

I love margaritas, especially fruity margaritas.

I get a little bit anxious when I think about how fast summer is going.  

I make it a point every summer to do as much as possible and take advantage of the warm weather, since Midwestern winters can keep us inside so much. I have a long bucket list in my head of things we have to do.  

Pool days, beach days, parks, ice cream outings, hiking, bike rides, backyard, parties, festivals, concerts, the list goes on.

 For me, nothing says summer more than a nice, backyard summer party.

Gathering the friends and family, creating fresh, seasonal appetizers and salads and firing up the grill.

 My favorite things about a backyard party happen to be the appetizers and the cocktails.  

If I go to a party and that is all they have, I am a happy camper.

At my parties I like to have a table of appetizers ranging from hummus, to salsa and guacamole, to crostinis and bruschetta.

I am such an appetizer girl, it’s almost a problem.

Pomegranate Margaritas are the perfect addition to a backyard party. Light, sweet and full of flavor.  

This cocktails uses PAMA which is sweet, yet tart and uses all-natural pomegranates.  

Hello, antioxidants! PAMA is made with all-natural pomegranate juice, premium vodka and a touch of imported tequila. 

PAMA’s sweet yet tart taste makes it the perfect addition to any summer party,whether in the form of refreshing cocktails, party punches, or sweet frozen summer treats. 

I keep thinking I need to make a big pitcher of these margaritas and turn them into adult popsicles for my next party. Are you in?
