Pomegranate Margarita Recipe for Best Holiday Cocktail Recipes @whiteonrice

How many versions of margarita recipes do we have? Oh, more than we can count on one hand so it’s pretty obvious we’re obsessed.  Our favorite is always the classic margarita, but we’ve been known to dive into other citrus variations. With over forty fruit trees, it’s hard to not play with different fruits in our mixes. Besides, it’s fun, refreshing and there’s always an occasion for a seasonal margarita.

Tis’ the season for pomegranates. Though our pomegranate tree had more leaves than fruit this year, we’re still drinking what we can. When it comes to Fall, Winter and New Years pomegranate cocktails are always a delicious pleasure to sip. They’re visually stunning too and the red hues are perfect for this time year.

Pomegranate margarita

Some pomegranates will be more tart or more sweet than others, so adjust the amount of simple syrup to your preference and to balance the pomegranate flavor.
Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 1 Cocktail
Calories: 206kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) pomegranate seeds
  • 1 1/2 ounces (45 ml) tequila
  • 1 ounce (30 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce (30 ml) simple syrup
  • Several dashes orange bitters
  • flaky salt or Kosher salt , for rimming the glass (optional)

Instructions 

  • If desired, rub the rim of your cocktail glass (our preferred glass for this cocktail is a tom collins/highball glass) with an edge of a lime slice and then salt the rim with kosher or other flaky salt. Add ice to the glass.
  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the pomegranate seeds to release their juices. Add the tequila, lime juice, simple syrup, orange bitters and ice.
  • Shake vigorously, then strain into the prepped cocktail glass. Garnish with additional pomegranate seeds and lime slice if desired. Serve or drink immediately and with leisure.

Notes

Note 1: Simple syrup is a 1:1 ratio of sugar and water. One cup sugar dissolved in one cup of water. This can always be modified for preferred taste, but this is a good starting point.

We tend to be a bit obsessive over our cocktail tools. Here’s some of our favorites we’ve collected and put to use over the years:

OXO Citrus Squeezer – What is the difference between an ok cocktail & a great one? Most of the time, fresh citrus juice. If you don’t have one, get yourself a squeezer.
Japanese Style Ice Pick – My favorite cocktail tool. With swag and great function, it’s perfect for cocktail geeks like us.
Cocktail Kingdom Leopold Jigger – We have a dozen jiggers, but this one is my favorite. Love the copper-plating, quickly gives a lived in patina. Love the lines on the inside marking off different measurements.
