Ingredients

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 ounce cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce cinnamon simple syrup

Cinnamon Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise

Instructions

Simple Syrup

  • In a saucepan combine the water, sugar, cinnamon stick, and star anise and bring to a simmer until the sugar has melted.
  • Let it simmer for another 5 minutes and then cool to room temperature.
  • The simple syrup can stay in the refrigerator for a week.

Cinnamon Pomegranate Margarita

  • Rim the glass with sugar.
  • Add all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  • Shake the cocktail for 30 seconds. Give it a good shake and no less than 30 seconds as the ice needs to dilute and mix the ingredients.
  • Strain the cocktail in a sugar-rimmed glass filled with ice.
  • Garnish with a cinnamon stick, pomegranates, and an orange slice.

Notes

Make sure you shake the cocktail really well with ice. This is a very important step. 
Use sugar or salt for the rim.
Before straining the cocktail, give it a taste with a small spoon. If it needs to be sweeter add in a dash more simple syrup. If it needs more lime add that and give it another shake.
Enjoy!
