This vibrant twist on a Mexican classic combines seasonal pomegranates with juicy grapefruit and ginger beer. This cocktail is great with or without tequila and is an excellent way to try your hand at mixology.
- 1 grapefruit, thinly sliced
- 1 pomegranate
- 1.5oz (or 1 shot) Tequila
- 4.5oz (3 shots) grapefruit juice
- 1.5oz pomegranate juice
- 1.5oz ginger beer or ginger ale
- 1oz lime juice
Start by slicing the grapefruit and pomegranate. A trick to remove the pomegranate seeds is to cut the fruit into quarters and let sit in a large bowl of water for 1-2 minutes. After this, the seeds should push out of the fruit easily.
For the sugar rim, run a slice of grapefruit around the rim of the glass and dip into coarse sugar poured onto a plate. Fill the cup with ice and add tequila, grapefruit juice, ginger beer, and lime juice. Stir to combine and top with pomegranate juice, a grapefruit wedge, and a spoonful of pomegranate seeds. Cheers!
