Celebrate under the stars with a ruby red pomegranate margarita. Usually, margaritas come with a salt rim, but this beauty shines with a sparkling sugar topping. It's the perfect complement to the tart frozen limeade concentrate and cranberry juice.
6 cups white tequila
12 cups water
4 cups cranberry juice cocktail
2 cups pomegranate juice (we tested with POM)*
1 1/2 cups Triple Sec
2 (10-ounce) cans frozen margarita mix, thawed
2 (11.5-ounce) cans frozen cranberry juice cocktail, thawed and undiluted
2 (12-ounce) cans frozen limeade concentrate, thawed and undiluted
Light corn syrup
Coarse sparkling sugar
How to Make It
Combine first 8 ingredients in a very large plastic container. Cover and freeze at least 24 hours or until slushy.
Pour a small amount of corn syrup onto a flat plate. Pour coarse sugar onto another plate. Dip rims of margarita glasses in corn syrup; dip each glass into sugar. Pour margaritas into prepared glasses.
Freezer Note: For more convenient storage, divide Pomegranate Margaritas among zip-top freezer bags.
*Find pomegranate juice year-round in the produce section of your local grocery store.
I made these for the Christmas season in 2010 - it received rave reviews from everyone and I mean everyone. I had lost the recipe and have searched and searched for this and finally found it again - whew! I made the whole amount and froze it in different containers to take to different parties This is the best drink ever. The taste is great and it packs a punch!
CRANBERRY MARGARITAS ! (THAT should be the name of these)
These are very tasty, but they taste like cranberry not pom.I couldn't taste the pom juice at all. I made half a batch for four people and it was PLENTY. This is a huge recipe.
Dont bother looking for rock sugar, it is SO hard to find and super fine sugar works well. Slightly wet the rim of the glasses and dip in sugar ( you can ditch the corn syrup too, not necess.)
These were very tasty but honestly very strong. I added two cups extra of juice to the recipe and they were still plenty strong.
Great for a New years or holiday party !
This was fabulous! I served them with appetizers at Thanksgiving and got rave reviews from everyone. Warning, this makes alot of margaritas and I think halving the recipe would likely be enough for most gatherings.
