This post and recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek. I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine. This recipe is for adults 21 and older and does contain alcohol.

Pomegranate Margaritas Recipe
These pomegranate margaritas would be perfect for any Halloween get-together. The deep red color reminds me of blood, and the skeleton-hand glasses complete the theme.
The recipe below is scaled up for a crowd, but if you're expecting a smaller group, feel free to scale the recipe down and make them in a cocktail shaker.
I love margaritas because they're a not-overly-sweet cocktail. This one gets a little fizz from club soda. Otherwise, the ingredients are the same as a traditional margarita, because pomegranate blends well with the classic margarita flavors.
If you're not a tequila fan, but still want a pomegranate-flavored cocktail, you could also try making one of my all-time favorite drinks, Pomegranate Red Wine Sangria.
