This festive variation on a margarita is made with pomegranate syrup, silver tequila and fresh lime juice.
Black lava salt (see Note) or kosher salt
1 1/2 cups silver tequila
1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
1 cup pomegranate syrup (see Note)
24 dashes of orange bitters
Spread salt in a shallow dish. Run a lime wedge around the rims of chilled cocktail glasses, then dip the rims in the salt to coat.
In an ice-filled pitcher, combine the tequila, lime juice, pomegranate syrup and bitters. Stir well. Strain into the cocktail glasses.

To make pomegranate syrup, whisk together 3/4 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice with 3/4 cup sugar until the sugar is dissolved; you should have 1 1/2 cups.
