Pomegranate Margarita

Margaritas in December. It doesn’t exactly compute — margaritas smack of summer and poolside — but after giving a pomegranate margarita a whirl, I’m on board.

Fireside margaritas. For real.

I’m still not sure it’s something I’d want to drink every evening by the fireside, but it certainly was a tasty departure from the norm, and perfect for those warm winter evenings that sometimes happen in Texas.

Notes
I used my very own orange-infused brandy, and it worked great.
