Blood Orange Pomegranate Mai Tai

I realize that most people around the country are dealing with snow and frigid temperatures right now, but here in Texas, it's 75 degrees. So whether you are shoveling snow and needing a tropical getaway or you are already in flip flops like me, this tiki drink is the perfect thing to ease you into the weekend!

Blood Orange Pomegranate Mai Tai
3 limes slices
Stirrings Lemon Drop Rimmer
6 ounces Stirrings Blood Orange Martini Mixer
2 ounces gold rum
2 ounces silver rum
2 teaspoons almond flavored simple syrup
1 Tablespoon lime juice
2 Tablespoons fresh pomegranate arils
2 orange slices

Rub a lime slice around the rim of 2 cocktail glasses and then press the rims into the Stirrings Lemon Drop Rimmer to coat. Fill a shaker with ice then pour in the Stirrings Simple Blood Orange Martini Mix, gold rum, silver rum, almond syrup and lime juice. Shake for 30 seconds and strain into glasses. Garnish with pomegranate arils, lime and orange slices. Serves 2
