|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.
