Though it may act like it, summertime doesn’t have a monopoly on lime and tequila—and our winter margarita is here to prove it. The addition of pomegranate juice adds a festive, wintry bite, while a sugared rim (swapped for the usual salt) adds a hint of sweetness with every sip.

Perfect for dinner parties or warming up on a cold evening, this drink is happy to stand in until warmer weather intervenes.
