Mexico’s Mixology

HIBISCUS MARGARITA

hibiscus margarita    Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried hibiscus blossoms (about 2 ounces)
  • 3 cups water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup Triple Sec or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 8 lime slices

Preparation

  1. Place blossoms in a strainer; rinse under cold water. Combine blossoms, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Strain; discard blossoms. Cover and chill hibiscus mixture.
  2. Combine hibiscus mixture, tequila, juice, and Triple Sec. Serve over ice. Garnish with lime slices.
Note:Hibiscus blossoms can be found at Latin grocery stores. Boiling the blossoms in a sugar-water mixture and then steeping infuses more flavor than just steeping them in warm water. This drink is especially good when made with premium-quality tequila.

I suggest RIAZUL PREMIUM TEQUILA or CASA NOBLE TEQUILA
