Pomegranate Ginger Margarita Recipe

This pomegranate and ginger margarita is filled with crisp ginger, fresh lime, and tart pomegranate. It's tangy, fruity and refreshing but not overly sweet. The perfect summertime cocktail, best paired with a warm sunset and some spicy tacos (pork tacos would be a great pairing).


This is already not a traditional margarita, so for this recipe I omitted the Cointreau because I felt there were already enough fruit flavors to go around. But if Cointreau makes your heart sing - adding in a few ounces would only enhance this refreshing recipe and would bring it closer to a traditional margarita taste.  

Makes about 2 servings. 


  • Ice as needed
  • 4 ounces pomegranate juice (store bought)
  • 4 ounces silver tequila 
  • 1 ounce agave
  • 2 ounces lime juice (freshly squeezed from 2 large limes)
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
  • Lime slices for garnish


  1. Prep your ingredients: juice your limes, grate your ginger, and slice your lime for garnish.
  2. Prep your glasses: fill your glasses with ice, then run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and coat it in either sugar, salt or even tajin. For a little extra flavor, grate some lime zest into your rim coating mixture. The options are really endless. I’m a big fan of a salted rim, but for this particular cocktail I'm opting for a sugar rim to provide a sweet contrast with the tart pomegranate and lime.
  3. Combine: add in all your ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with around 1 cup of ice, then cover and shake well. 
  4. Enjoy: strain the ingredients in glasses of your choosing, add a garnish and cocktail napkin for a decorative touch, and enjoy!
