Give your Cinco de Mayo Margarita a POM Twist

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |


Whether you’re looking to kick back and relax or pump up the party with a refreshing margarita this weekend for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, look no further than this pomegranate-enhanced cocktail. All the makings of your traditional margarita and a bit of pomegranate-meets-tequila action as well.

Frozen Pomarita

1 oz. freshly squeezed pomegranate juice* or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. triple sec liqueur
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water dissolved together in cold water)
salt and lime for garnish (optional)

Shake all drink ingredients with ice to chill.

Serve this pomegranate cocktail recipe in a martini glass prepared as follows: Mix in a bowl, one part ground cinnamon and one part granulated sugar. Moisten the rim of a martini glass by swiping a slice of orange around the rim. Dust glass rim with the sugared cinnamon mixture and decorate with a spiral of orange.

Notes:
* This cocktail can be made with freshly squeezed juice from a POM Wonderful Pomegranate or by using POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice. To juice the pomegranate, cut it in half (as you would a grapefruit) and juice using a citrus reamer or a juicer. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer or sieve. One large POM Wonderful Pomegranate will produce about 1/2 cup of juice.
