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.


  • 4 slices peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 slices tangerine or orange
  • Ice cubes
  • ounces 100 percent agave blanco tequila
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces pomegranate juice


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.
