Pomegranate Paloma

Make simple syrup by simmering together equal parts white granulated sugar and water. If you are only making one of these drinks and don't have simple syrup made, just dissolve a teaspoon of sugar into the pomegranate and lime juices.

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Makes one cocktail


  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons simple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp (1 1/2 oz) white tequila (I'm using Piedra Azul Blanco, 100% agave)
  • 1/4 cup club soda
  • Kosher salt for glass rim
  • Sprig rosemary for garnish


1 Salt the glass: Brush the rim of an 8 ounce glass with lime juice, then dip the rim into kosher salt. Put ice in the glass.

2 Mix the drink: Stir together the pomegranate juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and tequila.

3 Pour into glass: Pour the mixture into the salt-rimmed glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary
