You celebrate them both of course. Powell & Mahoney, the first all-natural, hand-crafted, vintage original Cocktail Mixers, bring you two delicious cocktail recipes to capture the essence of both the Oscars (with a cocktail made with Powell & Mahoney’s True Grenadine, an all-natural blend of pomegranate juice and orange blossom), and National Margarita Day (with a cocktail made with Powell & Mahoney’s Jalapeño Margarita Mix, a unique mix of fire roasted Jalapeño’s and crisp lime juice).
