The deep red tones of this margarita cocktail come from pomegranate juice. Not only is this sweet juice beautiful, it's also packed with disease-fighting antioxidants.

Ingredients

4 cups crushed ice
1 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup orange liqueur
1/2 cup tequila
1 tablespoon lime juice
4 tablespoons pomegranate seeds (1/2 fresh pomegranate) (optional)
Lime wedges
Coarse salt
Garnish: lime slices

Preparation

1. Process first 5 ingredients, and, if desired, pomegranate seeds in a blender 30 seconds or until frothy.

2. Rub rims of 6 glasses with lime wedges; dip in salt to coat. Pour margarita evenly into prepared glasses. Garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice.

Note:

If pomegranates are not available, no problem. This drink is just as delicious without the fresh seeds.
