Ingredients

Black lava salt or kosher salt, (see Note)
Lime wedges
Ice
1 1/2 cups silver tequila
1 1/2 cups lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup pomegranate syrup, (see Note)
24 dashes of orange bitters

Preparation

Spread salt in a shallow dish. Run a lime wedge around the rims of chilled cocktail glasses, then dip the rims in the salt to coat.

In an ice-filled pitcher, combine the tequila, lime juice, pomegranate syrup and bitters. Stir well. Strain into the cocktail glasses.

Note:

Black lava salt is available at amazon.com. To make pomegranate syrup, whisk together 3/4 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice with 3/4 cup sugar until the sugar is dissolved; you should have 1 1/2 cups.
