Ruby ‘Rita

May 4, 2012

Makes 1 Serving


2 ounces Raspberry Zinger tea
1 ounce pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 packet Stevia In The Raw®
2 teaspoon Triple Sec, Cointreau or other citrus liqueur
1 ½ ounces Blue Agave tequila
Chilled martini glass, optionally salt-rimmed (see below)
1 thin lime slice, for garnish, optional


Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add the tea, pomegranate and lime juice, Stevia In The Raw®, and liqueur. Pour in the tequila. Shake to blend well. Strain the ‘Rita into the chilled glass. Serve immediately.

To rim the glass, rub a lime slice around the outside top of a martini glass. Half-fill a small teaspoon with kosher salt. Holding the glass upside down over a plate with one hand, gently tap the spoon against the outside 1/4-inch above the rim, leaving a 1/4-inch band of salt around the outside edge. Refill the spoon as needed. Chill the glass in the freezer while making the ‘Rita, or up to 24 hours.
