Substituting Grenadine for Sugar Syrup adds a fruity Pomegranate dimension to the classic Margarita, without diluting the Tequila kick (as is typical in many fruit juice based Pomegranate Margarita recipes). A quality Grenadine made with real Pomegranates is of course essential! This recipe was created by Chris Brookes.
Tiny bubbles line the glass of a Pomegranate Margarita cocktail.
Fill a Coupette glass with ice and water to chill it while mixing the cocktail.
Add lots of ice to the mixing tin.
Shake the drink well until condensation forms on the outside of the mixing tin.
Discard the ice and water in the glass.
Strain the contents of the mixing tin into the glass.
Taste the cocktail and if necessary adjust the balance with a touch of extra sugar or citrus juice.
