Dudes! It’s my blogaversary!!! Last year on Memorial Day weekend, I launched my very own website after years of quiet wishing. One second I’m thinking, “I can’t believe it’s been a year already,” and then the next second I’m thinking, “Wait, it’s only been a year?” Either way, we should definitely have a drink to celebrate.
So much has changed in the past year. Times were much harder back then, but finally our luck began to change, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
My husband and I both have stable, relatively well-paying jobs, and I no longer have to panic every time the rent is due. My daughter became a teenager, and I turned 35, which definitely makes me old. I got a new camera, but I still barely know how to work it. So much can happen in a year.
I still have big blogger dreams. Maybe by this time next year, people will actually read my blog. The good news and the bad news is that I’ll continue to make food, take it’s picture, write about it, and put it on the internet whether you like it or not. Especially since after all that is over, I get to eat it. Or in this case, drink. That’s a sweet gig right there.
Put some pomegranate juice in your margarita. It’s sweet and tart and just a tiny bit fancy. Make yourself a sugar rim because we’re celebrating. Doing something you love for a whole year is awesome, and I can’t think of a better reason to celebrate.
- Spoonful of sugar
- 2 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce triple sec
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 3 ounces pomegranate juice
- Get out two small plate and put a shallow layer of water in one and a big spoonful of sugar in the other. Flip your glass over and dip the rim into the water, then into the sugar so that the sugar sticks to the rim of the glass.
- Add ice to a cocktail shaker or a larger glass. Pour all the remaining ingredients over the ice and shake or stir. Pour the cocktail into your sugar rimmed glass. Make one for your friends because it's a party.
- If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, choose a sweetened pomegranate juice blend rather than an unsweetened pure pomegranate juice.
