Margaritas de Granada y Limón (Pomegranate & Lime Margarita)

Summer is the time for BBQ and nice drinks! The sunny weather always calls to extreme measures and that means making lots of nice cold cocktails and bbq’s every single weekend if we can!

So last Saturday I organised a “carne asada” for my Mexican comadres Susana, Haydee and Katrina, they all came to my house with their families and we had so much fun, eating and drinking, all and all it was a perfect afternoon. My lovely vecina Haydee gave me a Tequila as a present, so I decided to make frozen margaritas with pomegranate and lime and I have to tell you! You really have to make them on your next BBQ, they were a hit! The recipe is well easy, so here it is.

  • 1/2 tsp salt
