Fun Friday- Taylor Says Pumps and Pomegranate Margaritas

Yours. Mine. Ours!!!

Say it with me... Let's claim it together. Armed with resolutions, mantras, new planners and refreshed goals, we're ready to take on this puzzling thing called life. Your NYE hangover has been cured just in time for the freakin' weekend. What better shoe to express your current mood than one like this James Pump by Taylor Says, with its crossword puzzle print and filled-in words like "moxie," "art" and "babe" (because you're a total babe, and you know it). Oh... that puzzle print covers the outsole, too. Yay.

There may not be a better drink than a margarita to welcome the weekend. Since it's a new year, we're all thinking healthier thoughts, so why not try one that includes a superfruit? This Pomegranate Margarita we found on the blog at Threadsence.com looks pretty tasty. It's a concoction by Jessica of How Sweet it Is. Here's the recipe:

Pomegranate Margarita featuring Grand Marnier

Ingredients:
2 ounces Grand Marnier
1 1/2 ounces Tequila
2 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounce lime juice
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
coarse salt for the rim
lime + pomegranate arils for garnish

Directions:
For simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve, then turn off heat and let cool completely.
Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, pom juice, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in extra lime slices. Add some pomegranate arils for decoration.
