This Frozen Pomegranate Margarita (or Pomarita) recipe made with freshly squeezed pomegranate juice or POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice just screams day at the beach, girls night out or backyard barbecue!
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)
If serving Martini Style:
1 Slice of an Orange
Shake all drink ingredients with ice to chill.
Strain into glass.
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.
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.
