Earlier this week, I raved about the pomegranate-orange sorbet that I made with my POM Wonderful pomegranate juice. Since, I still had some juice and I needed a Tyler Florence recipe for this week, Tyler’s Pomegranate Margaritas seemed like a no-brainer.
Unfortunately, it was also a no-drinker. This was not very good at all. My husband said that it might be because we had brown tequila instead of white tequila. I don’t know, but the flavors were off. Oh, and the whole part about it being a no-drinker, that was a lie, because, apparently, I will drink all margaritas, bad or not. So, I don’t know what to tell you. It sounded like it should be good, I might try it again with the proper colored tequila.
from Tyler Florence
makes 2 drinks
1/4 cup pomegranate juice (plus seeds for garnish)
1/3 cup Tequila Blanco (about 4 ounces)
1/8 cup Triple Sec (about 1 ounce)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 ounces)
12 ounces ice cubes
margarita salt (optional)
Combine all the ingredients, except the salt and pulse in a blender until frothy and combined. Rim the glasses with salt, drop some seeds in the bottom of the glass (I didn’t) and pour the margarita over the top.
This will be my entry for this week’s Tyler Florence Fridays. I hesitated about posting it, since it wasn’t a winner with me, but I thought maybe someone could let me know if the made it with white tequila and thought it was good.
