Hibiscus Margaritas with Ginger and Lime


Refreshing Hibiscus Margaritas with Ginger and Lime made with dried hibiscus flowers ( or use hibiscus tea) honey, lime, fresh ginger and a hint of clove. Delicious and refreshing! A perfect Cinco de Mayo Cocktail!


  • 4 ounces good quality tequila
  • 1 ounce triple sec ( or orange liqueur)

Hibiscus Ginger Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup honey, or agave or sugar
  • 23 tablespoons dried hibiscus flowers ( or sub hibiscus 3 tea bags)
  • 56 disks thinly sliced ginger ( peels OK)
  • 6 whole cloves ( optional, but tasty! sub a cinnamon stick or 2 star anise)


Make Hibiscus Ginger Syrup by placing all ingredients in a small pot on the stove. Simmer gently for 5 minutes, let cool. ( you could let this rest overnight for more intensity) Strain.

Fill a shaker halfway with ice. Add tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and the Hibiscus Ginger Syrup.

Shake well. Strain into two ice filled glasses.

Notes: to make a sugar rimmed glass, rub the lip of glass with lime wedge, dip glass in sugar.


You can make these alcohol free! Make the syrup the same way. Strain, pour over ice, add lime juice and sparkling water to taste.
