How To Make A Fresh Pomegranate Margarita

There are few things I understand less than when someone says “I hate adulting!” Like bro, you must be doing it wrong. I get it, there are bills to pay and sometimes you have to do things you don’t like, but aside from money, you have something children don’t have: FREEDOM.

Understand this. You can make any decision you want, whenever you want. You don’t like your job? Find a new one. You don’t like your relationship? End it. If you’re not changing it, you’re choosing it. We seem to forget this. You literally can do whatever you want. Sure, you’ll have consequences, but you have consequences for any and every thing.

Look, I get bogged down in my hopes and dreams and what I want for my life, and I get behind on bills, and all that other B.S., but I get so excited about doing what I want when I want. IF YOU WANT CAKE FOR DINNER YOU CAN JUST DRIVE TO THE STORE AND BUY ONE. Incredible.

My Saturday was a perfect example of this. Now, not everyone is going to appreciate what a great day I had, and yes, I’m leaving a few details out, but even without those details…listen to this:

I woke up without an alarm. Cleaned the apartment. Did all my laundry, sheets and towels…everything! Opened the windows. Lit a candle.

And it gets better…

I did a full shower (hair wash, exfoliate, you know, all that extra $h!t). Made a fresh pomegranate margarita, facetimed a friend who lives across the country and ordered tacos. BEST DAY EVER.

I’m still happy about what a great day that was. So now here it is, how to make a fresh pomegranate margarita.

Score the pom (“pom” makes me cringe, but I’m not typing that out every time so we both have to get over it) with 5 lines evenly spaced apart. A fresh pom will easily pull apart and the seeds will easily detach from whatever that non-edible ish is. The skin? Doesn’t matter. Anyway, here’s what you do:

  • Muddle 1/3 c of the seeds
  • 1.5 shots of Patron
  • Splash or two of simple syrup (I make my own: boil 2 cups of water, add in 1/8 c of Stevia and stir, remove from heat and let cool)
  • Fresh lime juice

Rub some lime around your glass and dip in salt. Congratulations, you’re nailing it!
