Jamaica Margaritas

Make a welcoming, Caribbean-inspired margarita with fragrant hibiscus blossoms. The slightly tart blossoms steep in a sugar-and-water mixture, resulting in a fresh and tangy drink. Serve over ice, and garnish with lime.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup margarita and 1 lime slice)

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.
