Cherry-Pom Margarita

Sometimes, you just need a fancy drink. And if we’re going to keep it “trill” around here (that's how kids these days say "real"), those times are often accompanied by your "person" being coated in ratty, old sweatpants that may or not say “PINK” on the rump.

The problem here, if any, is that someone wearing this attire may not be super welcome at an establishment known for serving fancy drinks.

Unless your idea of a fancy drink is anything off of the Hooter’s "cocktail" menu.

I don’t judge! I’ll judge you behind your back with my Sunday School Class. Like the Southern woman I am.

Anyway, the other day, I was mowing the yard like a peasant. I say peasant because, I am too pretty for manual labor (obviously) and I had to use a PUSH mower. C’mon, people. Insert your pity in the comment section below.

The whole time I was living this downtrodden life, I was dreaming of a margarita (I don’t control the way my mind works) with some kind of pomegranate flavor. Thus, this recipe was birthed from the loins of my brain.

Also, I think we can all agree it has a super cute name.

Cherry-Pom Margarita

1 Cup Strong Pomegranate White Tea

Frozen Black Cherries

1 Shot Gold Tequila

1 Lemon & Lime, Juiced

1 Heaping Tablespoon Honey

Sprite or Fresca

After much trial and error, I have found this works like a dream in a blender. A beautiful, swirl of a magical dream.

Add tea, honey, tequila, and lemon/lime juice to the blender and let it whirl until it’s well combined about 45 seconds. Not to mention, this technique definitely caters to a super lazy mood. Like, have you ever seen those dudes shaking drinks and how exhausting that looks? Blegh. No thanks.

For a single serving, add about 5 or 6 cherries and pulse once or twice. If you pulse too much, you’ll get cherry skin throughout this tasty drink which could be delicious or gross. Personal preference.

Pour over ice and top with Sprite or your favorite flavor of Fresca.
