Watermelon Pomegranate Margarita Cocktail

When it comes to refreshing, it’s hard to do better than this Watermelon Pomegranate Margarita. For summer entertaining, Watermelon Margaritas are a staple – we prefer ours, the Watermelon Pomegranate Margarita Cocktails recipe, with a touch of pomegranate liqueur to bring a little tartness and a deep ruby color.

Why You Should Make This Pomegranate Margarita

If the classic margarita is too sweet for you, or you’re just looking for a change, you’ll want to try out this cocktail.

A Pomegranate Margarita is simply a classic Margarita made with some sort of pomegranate flavor. A lot of recipes use pomegranate juice but that seems to make the cocktail heavy and almost thick in texture. Here we use a similar formula to the Cadillac Margarita Recipe except we use watermelon juice and pomegranate liqueur and no simple syrup or orange liqueur.

These can be made one by one or by the pitcher — it’s a one-size-fits-all drink, which is why we love it so much. Here is a bit more about it:
