Tequila + Citrus = Awesome

two bottles of Proof Syrup, next to a pomegranate margarita

Tequila and lime complement each other perfectly — and create a delicious backdrop for other flavors, too. Achieve tequila + citrus greatness this Cinco de Mayo with these two variations on our Perfect Margarita

Proof Pomegranate Margarita
2 oz Tequila
1 oz Citrus Sour Proof Syrup or Margarita Proof Syrup
¼ oz Pomegranate Proof Syrup
¼ oz Simple Syrup (optional)
Lime Wedge

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with lime wedge.

Variation: Lose the simple syrup and increase the Pomegranate Proof Syrup if you like a tangier, fruitier cocktail.

Proof Perfect Paloma

2 oz Tequila
2 oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Citrus Sour Proof Syrup or Margarita Proof Syrup
Grapefruit Soda

Shake tequila, juice, and Proof Syrup with ice. Strain into an ice-filled Collins or highball glass. Top with grapefruit soda. 

Variation: For a less-sweet, lower-calorie cocktail, increase the Citrus Sour Proof Syrup or Margarita Proof Syrup to a full ounce and use grapefruit sparkling water instead of soda.
