Hibiscus Tea Margaritas
Hibiscus Tea is a current obsession of mine. I keep a pitcher of it in the refrigerator at all times and drink a couple glasses every day. Having it on hand also makes it easy to add to cocktails.
Just like Freshly Squeezed Orange Margaritas, this recipe relies on Rose's lime juice to add both sweet and sour flavors to this cocktail. Most margarita recipes call for lime juice plus simple syrup. I've found that Rose's lime juice can replace both of those ingredients.Print
- 4 oz Hibiscus Tea
- About 1 tablespoon coarsely ground salt
- 3 oz pure agave tequilla
- 1 oz orange liquor, preferably Cointreau
- 3 oz Rose’s lime juice, divided
- Chilled sparkling water or club soda
- A couple of lime slices for garnishment (optional)
- Pour 1 oz of Rose's lime juice onto a shallow plate.
- Add about 1 tablespoon of salt to another shallow plate.
- Dip the rim of two cocktail glasses into the lime juice to wet, and then into the salt to coat the rims. Fill glasses with ice.
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add hibiscus tea, tequila, orange liquor, and remaining 2 oz Rose’s lime juice. Stir to mix.
- Pour the liquid into both of the prepared glasses. Top with sparkling water, garnish with lime slices, and serve.
