Pomegranate Margarita

It's been a pretty rough week for me so far. Last night after work I decided that it was time for a drink. I picked up my husband and headed out to find a patio (I love the sunshine). I knew that Claddaugh's Irish Pub had a quiet patio and a happy hour. Claddaugh's has a great pub atmosphere, plenty of alcohol, and great Irish food. We ate the corned-beef and cabbage rolls, delicious! My husband enjoyed an Irish beer while I ordered the only margarita on the menu; the pomegranate margarita.
Let's start with the glassware. This is NOT what you would ever put a margarita in. I'm all for a margarita glass, a rocks glass, even a pint glass.... But not a martini glass. The worst part? They served it on the rocks in a martini glass. Stupid. The margarita itself tasted good. More like kool aide and less like something with alcohol, but good. 
This margarita consisted of Lunazul blanco tequila, Combeir Liqueur d'orange, Pama, sour, and lime. I would not suggest you order this margarita. Not based on the taste (that was good) but the price. In a martini glass for $8.... Not for this margarita lover! If you do decide you have to try it Claddaugh's has locations in: Maple Grove, MN (my location), Columbus and Toledo Ohio, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Middleton Wisconsin, Livonia and Lansing Michigan, Geneva Illinois, and three locations in Indianapolis Indiana.
Happy Drinking!
