No surprise, these pomegranate margaritas turn out bright fuchsia. Each glass is garnished with the expected salt plus sliced jalapeños.


  • 13/4 cups chilled pomegranate juice
  • Kosher salt
  • 11/2 cups silver tequila
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • Ice cubes
  • 8 lime slices for garnish
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced thinly for garnish


  1. Pour 1/4 cup pomegranate juice into a bowl wide enough for a margarita glass. Spread the kosher salt on a small plate. Dip the rims of the margarita glasses into the juice and then into the salt.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the remaining pomegranate juice, tequila, triple sec and lime juice. In batches, shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into the glasses. Garnish with a lime slice and jalapeños before serving.
