Whenever the sun is shining, I crave Mexican food. And whenever I get Mexican food, I need a Margarita (obviously!). And whenever I get a Margarita, I may need a second one (this is starting to sound a little "When You Get a Moose a Muffin"-y to me). But what if I want to enjoy my Mexican food and margarita(s) in the privacy of my own sunny backyard? I can get my food to-go but they tend frown upon giving anyone alcohol to-go. I am condemned to margarita mix or squeezing a thousand limes. OR I can have these delicious Pomegranate Margaritas which require very little effort (hence the two minute title) and have great flavor!
This recipe comes from Kay Hartz, my friend Rachael's mom, who introduced my college roommates and our parents to fast and tasty margaritas that you make by the pitcher. I think she changes the ratio of the tequila to beer, but I usually like to do 1 to 2 cans tequila then the rest cheap beer. Adding the pomegranate juice makes it taste good and you look pretty fancy drinking it. Don't forget the salt (or sugar) rim!
Impress your friends with these Cheater Pomegranate Margaritas this Cinco de Mayo! Try serving with Pork Carnitas and Carnitas Tacos , The Orange Sauce (aka Crack Sauce), Pico de Gallo and Mexican Style Hominy for a feast you'll want to eat over and over again.
