2 ounces tequila
1 1/2 ounces Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec)
2 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
lime wedges, for garnish
coarse salt, for garnish (optional)
pomegranate seeds, for garnish (optional)
Place a good amount of salt on a small plate. Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of a lowball glass. Dip the glass in salt to coat. Fill the glass halfway with some crushed ice and set aside.
Using a cocktail shaker, add a good amount of ice. Add the tequila, Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec), pomegranate juice, lime juice and simple syrup. Shake vigorously to incorporate.
Pour the tequila mixture into the prepared glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and a few pomegranate seeds.
