- 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
- 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.
- 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
