I recently bought a bottle of pomegranate juice for a really good price. This recipe was the perfect use for it. I used a bit less tequila (as I do not really love it) and was thrilled by the result. Next time you make Tex-Mex, you should make a pitcher of these.
Pomegranate Margarita (from Confections of a Foodie Bride)
- 2 cups homemade margarita mix (see below)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 1/2 cup silver tequila
- 16 oz bottle 100% pomegranate juice
- Salt or sugar, for rimming
- Lime wedges
Mix all ingredients in a pitcher. Pour over ice into salt or sugar-rimmed glasses.
Serve garnished with lime wedges.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (~8-12 limes)
In a saucepan, combine the sugar and water until the sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool then add the lime juice. Store in a refrigerator until ready to use.
