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

- Juice of half a lime
- 2 Dashes of Orange Bitters
- 2 Dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
- Ice for the shaker

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!
