Pomegranate Margaritas

  • TOTAL TIME: 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8

"I just love pomegranates," says chef Govind Armstrong, who uses the tart fruit in everything from salads to sauces. "Last winter, so many farmers brought me pomegranates that I had to think of something else to do with them. So I came up with this cocktail."

  1. 1 3/4 cups chilled pomegranate juice
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 1 1/2 cups silver tequila
  4. 1 cup triple sec
  5. 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
  6. Ice cubes
  7. 8 lime wheels, for garnish
  1. Pour 1/4 cup of the pomegranate juice into a saucer; spread kosher salt in another saucer. Moisten the outer edge of 8 margarita glasses with the pomegranate juice, then coat with the salt.
  2. In a pitcher, stir the remaining 1 1/2 cups of pomegranate juice, the tequila, triple sec and lime juice. Working in batches, shake the mixture in a large ice-filled shaker, then strain into the glasses. Garnish each margarita with a lime wheel and serve.
