Sparkling Pomegranate Margaritas

I am just completely baffled by the fact that 2014 will be over in like 48 hours. WHERE did it GO?

When we rang in the new year this time last December, I remember hoping and PRAYING that 2014 would be better than 2013. This year was still rough, but I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress in the “career” and “being an adult” areas. Got a big girl job and an apartment. Bought myself some furniture and dress pants. Started a local blogging community with some friends. But I have to say, one-and-a-half years out of college and I still feel like I’m struggling with this “real life” thing.

Sometimes this is okay though, because you have the occasional nights that are made up of margaritas in mason jars and new friends and Cards Against Humanity and it makes you feel like you’re in college again. And those times are really fun.

The first time I had a sparkling margarita was probably almost a year ago at this Mexican restaurant in Homewood, which, coincidentally, I live within walking distance of now. I had never had a sparkling margarita before, but I’ve gotten it every time since then because it’s just so good. Too good! I’ve been wanting to make them for awhile now, what with my obsession with interest in margaritas and all. I mean, who can say no to a marg full of bubbles?

In an effort to make something at least a little different, and also to just have another reason to buy one of those fun-shaped Pom Wonderful bottles, I decided to go with pomegranate. And these margs couldn’t be any easier! You know, after you make it through opening the bottle of champagne.

You really only need 4 ingredients: pomegranate juice, lime juice, tequila, and champagne. Easy as pie!

Whip up a batch of these fizzy drinks for your NYE festivities! You stir the juice and tequila together in a pitcher (NOT a pitcher with a giant crack in the bottom. Let me tell you, that gets pretty messy), pour it in some glasses, and top with champagne!

These margs are the perfect way to say LATERRR to 2014 and ring in the new year! Here’s to 2015, y’all!
