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 😉
Ingredients (makes one margarita)
- 2 oz tequila
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 fresh mint sprig
- 3 oz Pomegranate Italian Soda
- ice cubes
Add the tequila, lime juice and mint sprig to a glass and muddle the mint.
Add the ice, then top with the pomegranate soda and serve.
Feel free to add a few pomegranate seeds if you’re feeling fancy 😉
Sip this on Cinco De Mayo next week, Taco Tuesday every week, or basically any day this summer when you’re looking for a super refreshing cocktail to sip in the sun!
