Inspired by Freutcake’s recipe // here // I made my own version using San Pellegrino’s pomegranate soda water instead of sweetened pomegranate juice. And while my beverage is 19+ i.e only for those of age, I’m sure you could make a virgin version with simple syrup.

As a quick aside, if you haven’t already got a set of killer glasses for outside, you should check-out the drink ware selection on Wayfair.ca // here //. I really like this hobnail set // here //, there tiki ones (given my theme) // here // and these lovely highball glasses // here //.
Also, big shout-out to some local talent – if you’re not familiar with her, you should check out Jolie Dionne of Vintage Meets Glam.com who helped me out with the shoot. She’s a DIY and Home Decor blogger located in Fredericton, NB, Canada. She shares her eclectic filled home with her husband and their 4 rescue cats.<– which means we have a lot in common.
Other cocktails in the TGIF series:
- 2 slices of jalapeno plus more for garnish
- 4 oz. silver tequila – I went with Patron, might as well get the good stuff.
- 8 oz. San Pellegrino Pomegranate Soda Water
- Lime juice
- kosher salt for rim
- crushed ice
You can make this cocktail in the glass or in a shaker. I made mine in a glass because I wanted everyone to be able to control how strong they wanted their drink, but if you’re making a big batch of the cocktail, go for the shaker.
Step 1: Rim your glass using a lime wedge.
Step 2: Up-end your glass on a plate of kosher salt to cover the rim.
Step 3: Add crushed ice or ice cubes. If you have cool ice spheres those are also super fun and you can buy a mold on Wayfair // here //
Step 4: Add about 3/4 of an ounce of lime juice to the glass.
Step 5: Follow with 4 oz of tequila.
Step 6: Top up the glass with the San Pellegrino Pomegranate Soda Water.
Step 7: Garnish with slices jalapeños and fun “let’s party” cocktail skewer // here //
I’m pretty much in love with this drink, although the heartburn after was wicked, so maybe pop an antacid first.
If you’re digging all the paper finishes // here //and love the tiki linens // here //, make sure check-out how I made them! Because you too can have your very own set of kitschy glam tiki accoutrements.
