Frozen Pomegranate Margaritas

Prep Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
3 hrs 15 mins

Freeze the juice in ice-cube trays and blend up frosty drinks in seconds. The salt-and-sugar-coated glass rims make a surprising touch.


  • 5 ¼ cups pomegranate juice (such as Pom)

  • 1 cup fresh lime juice (from 6 to 8 limes), plus more for rims

  • ¾ cup tequila

  • cup granulated sugar

  • 5 tablespoons Cointreau or Grand Marnier

  • Coarse salt and turbinado sugar, for rims


  1. Divide pomegranate juice among three ice-cube trays; freeze until solid, at least 3 hours and up to 1 week.

  2. Working in 2 batches, puree juice cubes, lime juice, tequila, granulated sugar, and liqueur in a blender until smooth.

  3. Combine equal parts salt and turbinado sugar on a plate; place additional lime juice in a bowl. Dip rims of glasses in juice, then salt mixture. Spoon margaritas into glasses and serve.
