These new Spicy Pomegranate Holiday Margaritas are the absolute perfect Christmas cocktail. A little festive, a little feisty, and oh so delicious.
If you’re looking for a fun new cocktail to make this year for the holiday’s, this is the one!! They are so easy to make, but have a fancy flare and are so incredibly yummy.
First, get out your cocktail shaker, and add the sliced jalapeños, simple syrup, lime juice, and tequila. Using a muddler or spoon, muddle that concoction around to release the juices of the jalapeños.
Next, add in the pomegranate juice, cointreau, and a big handful of ice. Shake it up until it’s too cold to hold!! IYKYK.
I personally like to add salt and sprinkles to the rim to add a little sparkly touch but also because who doesn’t love a salty sweet combo??
Pour the drink over ice and enjoy!!!Print
