Hello new favorite cocktail! All last summer we sipped on these Hibiscus Margaritas with Ginger and Lime, and I fell in love with their color and flavor. Over time, this is what they have morphed into.
The ginger adds a pleasant zingy bite, and the cloves, although optional, add a subtle whisper of the exotic. They are sweetened with honey ( or agave) instead of sugar and together with the fresh lime juice, they feel like a refreshing glass of summer.
Note- to make this alcohol- free, substitute sparkling water for the alcohol ( do not shake, just pour it in the glass).
If new to hibiscus, make sure you take a peek at this Hibiscus Flower Quesadilla Recipe. While in Mexico several years ago, I ate at this lovely little cafe where hibiscus flowers were folded into a quesadilla. Such a wonderful surprise! They added such great flavor and texture, it was a bit of a mind opener for me. They are also very nutritious!
Then just shake it up with the tequila, triple sec ( or orange liquor) and fresh lime juice.
For a nice touch, sugar the rim of the glass by rubbing the lime wedge around it, then dipping in sugar.
Pour over ice and garnish with lime wheels.
