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??
