Pomegranate Pineapple Margarita

Pineapple + Pomegranate Margarita Recipe

This Pomegranate Pineapple Margarita recipe makes two cocktails – but you may not want to share!

Since we’re just a couple of days shy of Cinco de Mayo, I’ve got margaritas on the brain.  I’m obviously not the only one – my friend Kate Ramos from ¡HOLA! JALAPEÑO has organized a crew of bloggers to post different margarita-themed recipes for the entire week. Head to Kate’s Margarita Week page to see them all – I plan to sample three or four of them in the next couple of days!

pineapple pomegranate margarita recipeMy contribution to the Margarita Week madness is this pineapple + pomegranate number. It’s slightly tangy, uber-refreshing (remember when uber was just a word?) with a nice tequila kick.

This pineapple margarita recipe calls for a splash of simple syrup, which you can either make or buy, whatever works for you. It’s equal parts sugar and water, and handy for all kinds of things, not just cocktails. Get the instructions for making simple syrup here.

If you try this recipe out, let me know!
