1 ounce Cointreau
4 ounces Tequila
3 ounces pomegranate juice
2 ounces lime juice
coarse salt for the rim
lime wedges & pomegranate arils for garnish

Fill with ice & shake until the cocktail shaker is quite cold. Fill the glass with ice and pour the margarita over. Garnish with some pomegranate arils and lime wedges. If we are making more than one – and we usually are! – we like to put the margarita ingredients in a pitcher and stir over ice, then pour into the prepared glasses and add garnish.
