It's got two full cups of tequila.

Ina Garten became our quarantine icon the second she posted that giant cosmopolitan to her Instagram account -- at 9:30 in the morning, no less. But she's not the only celeb dipping into the liquor cabinet a little extra these days. Martha Stewart took to social media Wednesday to share her own cocktail recipe, a margarita with two full cups of tequila. 

As part of an ongoing IG series "Homeschool with Martha," Stewart filmed her step-by-step instructions for pomegranate margaritas, or as she calls them Martha-ritas.  

"Looks good, smells good and it is going to taste good," she says, before warning, "this is a festive drink, one per person for the evening -- no more. This is plenty large enough." 

Stewart starts by dousing the rim in lime juice and adorning it with "coarse, sparkly salt, fleur de sel from the Grenadines." Then she directs viewers attention to the blender, where she's already measured out two cups of freshly squeezed lime juice, two cups of tequila, and a 1/2 cup of triple sec. Martha then measures out a 1/2 cup of pomegranate concentrate, adds ice, and blends, advising "you want it icy, frothy, cold, and pink,"

The recipe makes four large goblets worth, so you and your entire quarantine crew can suck these down at happy hour -- or for breakfast, if you're taking a note from our girl Ina. "Pomegranate margarita, 'Martha-rita,' whatever you want to call it," Stewart toasts. "It's a good thing."
