  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Sugar to rim the glass; you can also use salt if you prefer a more traditional margarita flavor
  • 1/2 Cup Pomegranate Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Sparkling Water
  • 4 Ounces Tequila
  • 2 Ounces Cointreau
  • 1 Lime Squeezed plus extra slices, for garnishing
  • Ice Cubes
  • 1/4 Cup Frozen Cranberries


  • Start by pouring your vanilla sugar onto a plate.
  • Slice a small piece of your lime, and rub it along the rim of each glass, making sure that the liquid sticks to it.
  • Dip the rim into the sugar unit it’s fully-coated all the way around.
  • Next, in a shaker, add in the pomegranate juice, sparkling water, tequila, cointreau, and lime juice.
  • Shake for about 15-20 seconds, or until fully combined.
  • Add ice to each of the glasses.
  • Divide the margarita mixture between the two glasses.
  • Add in a few frozen cranberries to each glass.
  • Garnish with a slice of lime, and enjoy!
