The Twelve Drinks of Christmas – Skål

so cranky  proposed it

welcome to T12DoC

for the second day, we decided on a pomegranate margarita.  mainly because there was a pomegranate in the house.


with pomegranate seeds!

The Twelve Drinks of Christmas - Day Two

to make:

muddle a few pomegranate seeds (8-12) with ½-jigger of simple syrup* in the bottom of a cocktail shaker

add 2 jiggers of tequila

add ½-jigger of lime juice

add ice and shake

strain into cocktail glass

if you like, add a few pomegranate seeds as garnish

*simple syrup = add 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup boiling water – stir until dissolved.  let cool and keep in fridge until called for.

Skål !

    • heh. thanks
      I swiped the pic a long time ago from a post about animal pics with Santa. now that I changed themes and this one had a spot for a header, it seemed appropriate

  1. I think pomegranates are maybe the one fresh ingredient where I reach for the bottled stuff instead of working with the fruit. Messtastic.

    Great choice for the holiday season though!

    • messtastic they are, fer shure. I’ve learned to open them in a bowl full of water, which cuts down the messiness, but not the effortness.

      we only get fresh pomegranates for a few weeks in November-December here in the Upper South, so they are worth the effort, I think.
