Picture

Keep in mind this photo was taken on my little foodie adventure to the South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF), so the disposable cups were not my idea of creative food staging.  The folks from POM Wonderful had one of the best cocktails under the tents.  I only drank one (darn it) but I walked away with the recipe created by Chef Marc Forgione and I plan to use it often.
Enjoy! XO  Martha

Pom Thyme Margarita
1 oz Pom Wonderful Pomegranate juice
2 oz of 3 Amigos Tequilla
2 tsp thyme-infused simple syrup*
1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp freahly squeezed lime juice

Assemble all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well with ice.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with a fresh thyme sprig.

*Thyme infused simple syrup is a combination of fresh thyme, water and sugar.  Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add one cup of sugar and 6 springs of fresh thyme.  Stir the ingredients together until the sugar completely dissolves.  Let the syrup cool down and strain to remove the thyme.
