On a hot summer day, this Pomegranate Cocktail with Orange Bitters, Tequila, and Grenadine is the perfect summer cocktail. The tangy taste of pomegranate juice mixed with the orange bitters and sweetened up with grenadine screams summer… add a couple lemon slices, then topped with a mint leaf or two and you’re basically on vacation.
It really should be named the Most Refreshing Summer Drink ever!
Pomegranate Cocktail with Tequila
This is a pretty simple recipe. You don’t need cocktail making skills to blend up this tasty beverage.
Besides all the ingredients, you’ll need your basic cocktail making supplies.
I’ve added affiliate links for your convenience.
- cocktail shaker ( I think I need this pretty hammered copper one)
- shot glass with measurements
- large glass or mason jar
Because this is a “hanging out on the patio” summer type drink, you don’t need fancy glasses. Mason jars are perfect! Or those Mexican drinking glasses. I used to have a whole set with the blue rims until I broke them one by one. I did, however, buy one in Mexico about 30 years ago with a green rim, and I still have it! It’s my husband’s favorite drinking glass. I love those!
Like I said, this is such an easy cocktail to make! Grab your shaker and you basically just dump everything in and shake!
You’ve got your grenadine and the tequila.
Then in goes the bitters.
Add the juice and lots of ice…
Time to shake it up! There’s nothing wrong doing a little dance while you shake it.
Fill up your glass with more ice and pour your delicious Pomegranate Cocktail!
Don’t forget the garnish.
