Drink Recipe: Drink To Mexican Independence Day With The Unique Don Julio Pomegranate Margarita

Is it just me or does it seem like there’s a holiday to drink to almost every other week? I’m not mad at that at all, just making an observation. And it looks like the latest holiday to drink to is none other than Mexican Independence Day which takes place on September 16th. I see no reason why you shouldn’t celebrate Mexican Independence Day with a margarita, but if you’re looking for a margarita that’s a little on the creative side then you may want to give the Don Julio Pomegranate Margarita a shot. The Pomegranate Margarita is made using Don Julio Blanco, pomegranate juice, and other margarita staples. Check out the full recipe below.


1 1/2 ounces Tequila Don Julio Blanco

2 1/2 ounces pomegranate juice

2 teaspoons fine sugar

1/2 ounce lime juice

Sugar (to rim glass)

1 lime wedge


Combine Don Julio Blanco, pomegranate juice, fine sugar and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake well. Rim margarita glass with sugar. Strain ingredients into margarita glass. Garnish with lime.
