It's a pleasant Sunday afternoon, temps in the 80s and edging toward 90, and I'm trying to think of something good to drink. Browsing the web, I see it's Nationa Tequila Day (last Sunday, July 24th). Well...I must celebrate.
A little more browsing and I find an intriguing recipe...the Ruby Margarita. It turns out very good, is only about 150 calories, and loaded with anti-oxidants so I can feel relaxed and good about myself during this afternoon's Cocktail Hour.
Here is the recipe...
INGREDIENTS (two drinks)
Juice of 2 medium limes (or 3 small limes)
3 oz. tequila
1 oz. agave syrup
1 oz. brandy
4 oz. pomegranite juice or cocktail
In a cocktail shaker half filled with ice, mix all ingredients. Pour pomegranite juice in last...fill to the top with it. Strain into two ice filled highball or pint glasses.
