Lemon Pomegranate Margaritas

11 May

As the Florida sun causes temperatures to rise higher and higher, my love for fresh, lemony flavors springs forward. And what better to cool you down on a hot summers day than a nice margarita? Pull out the lawn chairs, grab a good book, and brave the sun with this refreshing, summer drink in hand!

For the margarita:

1 oz tequila (I used Jose Cuervo Silver)

1/2 oz Cointreau (or Grand Marnier)

Juice of 1 large lemon (or 3 tablespoons)

1/4 cup pomegranate juice

1 teaspoon agave nectar (or honey)

Sierra Mist

Combine first 5 ingredients in a shaker and shake until combined. Pour over ice and top off with as much Sierra Mist as desired.


I rimmed my glass with sugar, instead of salt for a sweeter version. For the rim, simply wet the edge of the glass with a lemon wedge and roll it in sugar (or a mix of sugar and lemon zest).
