Pomegranate margaritas are vivid in taste and appearance. The pomegranate juice mixes with the lime to create a vibrant beverage that will add flair to your table setting and life to your party. 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.
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. This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone’s tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go from taste. We also suggest buying the lime juice if you plan on making a pitcher (or 2) considering you’d have to squeeze a billion limes to get enough juice. ( 5elected from www.howsweeteats.com )
