This is a great recipe for a Margarita that is definitely above average. It uses a sugary water that is flavored with hibiscus flowers, acting as a wonderful compliment to the bouquet in Tequila Tezón Blanco. It looks beautiful with an unblemished hibiscus in full bloom floating on top as well.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a chilled cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled margarita glass.
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge.

*Agua de Jamaica (Hibiscus):

  • 2 cups (2 oz) jamaica flowers
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (more if desired)
  • 6 cups water
  1. Bring the water to a boil.
  2. Add the flowers and sugar and stir continuously while the mixture boils for one minute.
  3. Pour into a noncorrosive bowl and steep for 2 hours. *Note- this flower will stain so do not use a bowl that will stain.
  4. Strain the mixture through a sieve, pressing on the flower solids to extract as much liquid as possible.
  5. Taste for strength and sweetness. If it is too potent, add water. If it is too tart, add sugar.
  6. Cover and refrigerate until time to serve.
