Why You’ll Love this Pomegranate Margarita Recipe

This recipe combines pomegranate juice and sugar to make a simple syrup - no messy deseeding pomegranates necessary (unless you want to garnish the drink with seeds). This cocktail is fruity and beautiful. It’s a bit got the usual sweet and sour combination of a margarita that’s just so compelling!



History of the Pomegranate

Pomegranates are the best - even though they are a little tricky to eat. The pomegranate is one of the oldest cultivated fruits - it gets it's name from the Latin words pomum (apple) and granatus (seeded). It's been an important fruit for several spiritual traditions - including Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Pomegranates have seen a resurgence in popularity lately (making it far beyond Mediterranean cuisine) because of their health benefits - they're high in fiber, protein, and vitamins C and K.
