Pomegranate Mint Margarita

Pomegranate Mint Margarita Recipe

A week from today is Cinco De Mayo, it’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate, because well… tacos and margaritas, yes please!

I’ve been busting out a lot of new taco recipes lately, Korean BBQ Chicken, Tacos Al Pastor, and Beef Barbacoa, but it’s been a while since I created a new margarita recipe, so I figured that it was about time!

I love mojitos and I love margaritas so I decided to throw a little mint in my margarita to give it that “mojito feel”! I’m also not a big fan of super sweet drinks, so instead of simple syrup, I added Pomegranate Italian Soda.

The result was a bubbly, slightly tart, light and refreshing margarita that I could sit out on the patio and sip all day… and I did 😉
