Delicious margarita for the fall and winter months. Perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.


  • 2 tbsp coarse sugar
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 ½ oz silver tequila
  • ½ oz Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
  • ½ fresh lime juice
  • 3 oz pomegranate juice
  • Dash of orange bitters (or 1/4 tsp orange extract, optional)
  • 1/2 oz maple syrup or agave nectar (optional)
  • Ice
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds for garnish (optional)


  1. Start by rimming the glass. Add the sugar to a plate or a shallow bowl, run the lime wedge around the rim of the glass or dip the rim in a shallow bowl filled with water. Dip the rim in the sugar and set aside until ready to serve.
  2. Cocktail shaker: Add the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, pomegranate juice, orange bitters, and maple syrup (if using) to a cocktail shaker, add a few cubes of ice. Close the shaker and shake vigorously for a few seconds. Fill the rimmed glass with ice, pour in the cocktail, and top with a few pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!
  3. No cocktail shaker: pour all the ingredients except the ice into the glass, stir well to combine, top up with ice, a few pomegranate seeds, and enjoy!


If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can use a mason jar and pour it into a glass through a mesh strainer.

Drink responsibly.
