Pomegranate Margarita

Pomegranate Margarita

As Scott and I were experimenting making drinks with pomegranate juice, he decided to bust out the tequila.  I was highly skeptical about this because for whatever reason, tequila + pomegranate juice did not seem like they would match up well.

I was wrong.  So, so wrong.

This drink has enough kick to let you know it’s a cocktail but mild enough that no one will end up with a lampshade on their head by the end of the evening.

Feel free to rim the glass with a little salt or a little sugar mix.

Andrea’s Pomegranate Margarita

  • 2 oz Reposado or Anjeo Tequila (You can use Silver if you prefer)
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 3 oz Pomegranate Juice
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2 Dashes of Orange Bitters
  • 2 Dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
  • Ice for the shaker
  • 6-8 oz Seltzer or Club Soda, optional

In a shaker combine all ingredients except the seltzer or club soda.  Shake for about a minute and pour into a glass.  Add the seltzer or club soda at this time and stir.  Serve and enjoy!
