Pomegranate Margaritas

Can alcohol be good tasting and good for you? OK, that might be stretching it a little, but pomegranates are high in anti-oxidants. So this has to be a tiny bit good for you...right?? A girl can dream...


  • 4 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 4 tbsp. orange-flavor liqueur
  • 1 cup 80 proof tequila


  1. Pour pomegranate juice into ice cube trays. Freeze until solid, about 2 hours. Pop cubes from tray.

  2. In a blender, combine lime juice, liqueur, and tequila. Turn blender to highest speed and gradually drop in juice cubes, whirling until slushy.

  3. Pour margaritas into glasses

serves 8 (ahem, or 2 if you are a tequila fan...like me!)

Tip: You can freeze the pomegranate juice cubes a day or two ahead. For juice, whirl pomegranate seeds in a blender or food processor, then pour through a fine strainer into a container. Serve margaritas in salt-rimmed glasses.
