If you remember when the Tequila Sunrise ruled bar menus across the land, you will recognize the roots of this elegant drink—but any similarity stops there. The lovely pale-pink color comes from pomegranate juice, and the drink has just the slightest hint of ginger.
In a shaker, crush the ginger and tangerine slices. Top with ice, tequila, syrup, lime juice, and pomegranate juice. Cover tightly and shake for 15 seconds, until well chilled. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a few pomegranate seeds or cut a slit in the ginger slice and slip it onto the rim.
