Pomegranate Margaritas are my favorite. Pomegranate juice adds a delicious tartness, and the color is stunning. Mix up a whole pitcher for your next party or celebrate all on your own. And don’t forget the sugar and salt rim.

Wow, friends, I think we might need to raise a glass around here. Just when you think things will stay the same forever, suddenly new opportunities appear out of the blue, and you start to think your life could finally change. An idea that I thought I could put into action in maybe six months is suddenly taking shape before my eyes. I’m going to stay cryptic for a little while longer, but I haven’t felt this excited in months.

And in case you’re saying “that’s great for you, but I’m still stuck in a rut,” I promise you it won’t last forever. It can be so hard to believe that things will change, but you never know what’s working in the background. Hold onto the belief that the universe is conspiring in your favor. I know it is.

I’m going to celebrate transformation with a Pomegranate Margarita. The tartness of pomegranate juice plays perfectly against the tequila to give your margarita a true puckery quality. I like to offset that with a salt and sugar rim. A bit of sweetness can never go amiss in my book. And the color is just too gorgeous to miss.

How to make Pomegranate Margaritas

Look, making a margarita is not rocket science. I mean, nothing says party quite like a margarita, so keep it cool. You can make these one or two at a time in a cocktail shaker, or stir up a big pitcher to pour over ice for a crowd. If you wanted to be extra fancy, you could pull out your blender and add lots of ice along with the other ingredients for some frozen margarita action.

You need tequila, Triple Sec or another orange liqueur, lime juice, and pomegranate juice. All the proportions are in the recipe card below. Just mix them together. No big deal. To rim your glass, add some water or lime juice in a shallow layer on a small plate. On another plate, sprinkle some fine sugar and coarse salt. Flip your glass over and dip it in the liquid then in the sugar and salt. You can gently press the salt and sugar against the side of the glass for a thicker layer. Then just turn the glass upright and fill it with pomegranate margaritas over and over.

Make it magical

Pomegranates are well known in mythology. Some scholars believe this was the forbidden fruit of the Bible instead of an apple (though it’s a myth, so I’m not sure it really matters). But more well known is the story of Persephone who was forced to live in the underworld after eating a pomegranate seed. This ancient fruit is definitely magical.

Pomegranate has feminine energy and represents both air and fire. Eating pomegranates can help you focus on your inner voice and your true needs. It increases your wisdom and can help to increase the power of your wishes. Oh, and if you’ve unearthed an old spell that lists blood amongst the ingredients, apparently, you can use pomegranate juice as a substitute. That’s a relief. (Source: Plentiful Earth)

  • Spoonful of sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 3 ounces pomegranate juice


  1. Get out two small plates and put a shallow layer of water in one and a spoonful of sugar and a pinch of salt in the other. Flip your glass over and dip the rim into the water, then into the sugar and salt so it sticks to the rim of the glass.
  2. Add ice to a cocktail shaker or a larger glass. Pour all the remaining ingredients over the ice and shake or stir. Pour the cocktail into your sugar and salt rimmed glass. 


  • If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, choose a sweetened pomegranate juice blend rather than an unsweetened pure pomegranate juice.
  • If you want to make a pitcher, just multiply all the ingredients and keep the same ratios.
