Recipe

Ingredients (serves 4):

Ice
1 fresh lime, halved
3 ounces premium blanco (silver) tequila
3 ounces Cointreau
3 ounces premium pomegranate juice (POM or Odwalla are our favorites)
1/2 tablespoon Agave Nectar

Directions:

  • Fill large cocktail shaker with ice
  • Squeeze in the juice of the lime halves
  • Add tequila and Cointreau
  • Top with the pomegranate juice and Agave Nectar
  • Shake briskly for 10-15 seconds and serve in chilled shot glasses

Bartender’s hint:  Use a good quality pure pomegranate juice from the refrigerated juice section of your local store.  The flavor of pomegranate “cocktails” (you’ll find these in the juice aisle next to the canned juices) isn’t robust enough to properly mingle with the liquor.  And we avoid the myriad of blends (pomegranate/blueberry, pomegranate/mango, etc.) as we just don’t think they taste as good as the pure stuff.
