MID-WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn

Tinis aren’t just for vodka! I found this Garnish with Lemon through Pinterest (of course).  It was a must try for the tequila girl. Now, prepared another way, it would be a Pomegranate margarita, but this was a fun way to try it.
Important on this one, make sure all glassware and shakers are well chilled as this isn’t served with ice and it lost its appeal when it warmed up. Also, if desired, rim glassware with sugar. It really made it pop.


3 oz. BLANCO Tequila 1.5 oz. Pomegranate juice 1 oz. Lime Juice 1 oz. triple sec or Grand Marnier


1) If desired, prepare the glass by rubbing edge with lime wedge and the coat in sugar. Return glass to freezer. Pour all ingredients in a martini shaker filled with ice and shake well. Strain contents of shaker into glass and serve immediately.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
