    There have been some pomegranate margarita recipes floating around for awhile made with fresh pomegranate instead of just the juice. Those sounded delicious.

    Here's one, but it's not the one I saw that I loved. That will take some more digging...
    2 ounces white tequila
    1/2 ounce Triple Sec
    1 ounce fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon fresh pomegranate juice (Can substitute bottled pomegranate juice)
    6 ounces ice (or more)
    Garnish with lime wheel or wedge


    Directions:

    Mix all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and frothy. Serve in a chilled glass and garnish with lime.

    ^Perfect! I just bought some pomegranate juice 2 days ago. yummmmmmm thanks NoDay, let us know when you find the one you liked better. I'll try this on a day when I'm feeling brave (or loaded up on antihistamine and food)

    I don't know if I'll be able to find it. I originally saw it in an issue of Weight Watchers magazine about 2 years ago, maybe more. I haven't been able to turn anything up through Google.

    I like to make watermelon granita, and then pour in some vodka. Other than that, white wine or g&t. Alas, I'll probably be knocked up soon, so no more booze for me

    I've drunk lots of cocktails, except for Bloody Mary. So I'll try it, even though I don't think I'll like it.

    Er, BTW, you guys only drink cocktails in summer??

    I loooooove a really good mojito, as they're not too sweet and very refreshing. I like margaritas as well, but it has to be well-made - I'm not a drink snob, I just don't care for a lot of slush or too much sugar. A sour lime margarita on the rocks (no slush) with a hefty salt rim is heaven. A simple whiskey sour is a good option as well.

    I do love a nice cold beer out on the deck or at a restaurant patio in the summer as well. I like lighter beers, but with flavour, nothing watery like Coors or Canadian. They have their place as thirst-quenchers during summer chores and sports, but if I'm sitting down to enjoy a drink I like a little more flavour! Hoegaarden is definitely my favourite, with Leffe, Keith's and Moosehead close behind. I like Strongbow and Magner's (is that it?) cider too. And wines are always a good choice.

    I love mojitos in a sugar rimmed glass with crushed ice, fresh mint, and a stick of sugarcane. I also like margaritas and cape cods.

    Cape Cod sounds good SouthernBelle, is it just vodka and cranberry juice, or is it this recipe?

    2 oz sloe gin
    1 oz gin
    5 oz cranberry juice
    1/2 oz fresh lime juice
    1/2 oz orgeat syrup

    Since you're Southern, maybe it's the one with sloe gin?
