Well, tomorrow’s Cinco de Mayo, and I really wanted to get a margarita recipe on here before then. I rushed home after work, and now that we have more daylight here, I am finally able to take photos on a weeknight again! This is how I spend my Friday nights, folks.
Aaand then I drank one of these on an empty stomach. And then I made myself some food since I am such a lightweight. And now I’m typing up this blog post with a lot of heartburn. Getting old sucks. Good story, bro. If you see typos, you know why. 😉
As mentioned in the intro to this post, I love the simplicity of this recipe. No messing around with syrups or strange concoctions. Mind you, I still have some simple syrup left over from the mint julep I made last weekend, but that’s not important right now.
Tomorrow’s also the Kentucky Derby, so you could definitely have an interesting mix of drinks. 😛 Pro tip: don’t mix your liquors.
I like this margarita on the rocks recipe because it’s not too sweet. The pomegranate juice (I used Pom Wonderful brand) and Cointreau add enough sweetness without it being cloying.
I also like that you don’t need to dirty up your blender for this easy margarita recipe. Are you Team Blended Margarita or Team On-The-Rocks Margarita?
Hope you try this refreshing cocktail!
Pomegranate Margarita Recipe
This pomegranate margarita is fast, easy to throw together, refreshing, and delicious! It uses pomegranate juice, so this drink can be enjoyed year-round.
- 1 ounce tequila
- 1 ounce triple sec (I used Cointreau)
- Pomegranate juice to top up glass
- Salt for rimming the glass
- Lime wedges
- Run the lime along the rim of the glass and then press the glass into the salt to create a salt rim.
- Add the ice cubes to the glass, followed by the triple sec, tequila, and a squeeze of lime. Top the glasses up with the pomegranate juice.
- This recipe is for a 6 ounce glass. If you're using a 9 ounce glass, use 1.5 ounces each of triple sec and tequila.
- I used crushed Maldon sea salt for the rims in the photos, but you can also use specialty flavored margarita salt.
