Totally safe for work cocktails
Can you believe Cinco de Mayo is a week away? With that in mind, I wanted to create a beautiful virgin margarita that tastes amazing. You can always add tequila, that wasn't enough of a challenge for me, so I began experimenting with Grenadine. If you're not familiar with Grenadine, it's a sweet syrup made from pomegranates. Yum! Since I am very good at grabbing random items out of the fridge and making accidental masterpieces, I thought it would be good to record the process. I'm glad I did, because I when I tried to recreate it without the reference, it didn't work.
Please note, you have to mix the drink in this order if you want the grenadine to sink to the bottom (trust me). Also, if you plan on using crushed ice, put the ice in first so it doesn't disturb the effect and you can substitute the margarita mix with limeade. I just used the margarita mix because we already had it in the house.
