… with alderwood smoked sea salt.
The folks at POM Wonderful sent us some pomegranate juice to try out. It’s 100% juice from the fruit they grow in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Good stuff.
I like my margarita a bit on the sour side. Add a dash of sugar if you like it sweeter.
6 oz (about 3/4 cup) POM
**or freshly squeezed pomegranate juice
2 oz. tequila
2 oz Cointreau
**or triple sec
3/4 oz lime juice
1 cup crushed ice
alderwood smoked salt
Rub lime on the rim of the glass and dip it in salt.
Measure out and mix the tequila, lime, Cointreau and pomegranate juice.
Put the crushed ice into a cocktail shaker or a tightly-lidded jar and add half the cocktail to it. Shake for 15 seconds. Strain it into the the glass. Add the second half. Shake for 15 seconds. Strain it into the first half. Serve with a lime wheel.
Alderwood smoked sea salt
The red alder tree grows along the Pacific coast from from California to Alaska. Its bark and wood was used by the Salish Indians and other coastal tribes for smoking meats and salmon.
Alderwood smoked sea salt is pure Pacific sea salt slowly smoked over a red alderwood fire. The process imparts a full-bodied smoky flavour to the salt.
Manisha kicked off the Travelling NaBloWriMo Masterpiece a few months ago. The 11×14″ canvas travels from blogger to blogger, with each one adding his/her own input.
I volunteered though I can’t draw or paint. I received it two days ago and it already had a sun and mountains. Damn.
