Rosemary Pomegranate Margarita


This rosemary pomegranate margarita is the perfect Christmas cocktail! It’s perfectly balanced with pure pomegranate juice and an easy rosemary simple syrup.


Rosemary Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh rosemary

Salt Rim

  • Lime wedges
  • Flaky sea salt

Rosemary Pomegranate Margarita (for 1 cocktail)

  • 1.5 oz blanco tequila
  • 1 oz orange liqueur
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 oz 100% pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 oz rosemary simple syrup
  • Pomegranate seeds and rosemary sprigs for garnish


Rosemary Simple Syrup

  1. Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a simmer and allow the sugar to fully dissolve. Drop in the rosemary and continue to simmer for 30 seconds.
  3. Remove from heat and let the syrup steep for 30 minutes to 1 hour. The longer it steeps, the stronger the flavor.
  4. When it’s done steeping, strain into a glass container and chill until you’re ready to make the cocktails. The syrup is the most flavorful the day of, but it can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Salt Rim

  1. Cover a small plate with flaky salt and run a lime wedge around the rim of a cocktail glass.
  2. Rub the rim into the salt and then fill the glass with ice.
