Bottoms up and hale to the winning team! I’m not playing favorites or predicting who will win the Super Bowl this Sunday. However, I wanted to offer a recipe from the fair city of Seattle. Next up is New England fare; to honor both teams. Whether you’re entertaining at home or tailgating drinks on the run, this citrusy cocktail balances sweet and tart brilliantly and the pomegranate makes it a celebration for not only the big game, but any day you feel the need to deliciously drink in a taste of Seattle.
Sugar or salt (depending on your preference)
½ cup pomegranate juice
½ cup blood orange juice
½ cup fresh lime juice
½ cup Tequila Blanco
4 tablespoons agave
Prepare the glasses: Drag a cut lime or blood orange around the rim of the 4 glasses. Dip the rim in sugar or kosher salt, depending on your preference.
Make the drink: Combine ice, the agave, the pomegranate, blood orange and lime juice and the tequila in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and then pour into a chilled ice filled glass. Garnish with blood orange and pomegranate seeds.
