Who says margaritas are just for summer? This pomegranate twist on a cocktail favorite is good all year long—elegant enough for the holidays and fun enough for an outdoor barbecue.

  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 cup white tequila, chilled
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice, chilled

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle lime zest on a small plate and combine with salt (if using).
  2. Combine tequila, pomegranate juice, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup in a pitcher.
  3. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with the lime wedge and dip in the zest (or zest-salt mixture). Fill the glasses with ice and top with about ½ cup margarita mixture each. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and lime, if desired.
  • To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate the margarita mix (Step 2) for up to 2 days.
  • Tip: To make your own simple syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1½ cups.

So yummy... I did increase the simple syrup by 1 tbs. though and added the lime zest and salt directly to the margaritas.
