If I had to choose a favorite cocktail or drink order (besides the ever-boring vodka or tequila soda or glass of wine), it would be a margarita. I have a lot of margarita recipes here on The Stripe but this is definitely a new fav, all thanks to this (delicious!!!) hibiscus syrup. This Hibiscus Margarita Recipe is a favorite as it is refreshing and light (and not too sweet – I’m not into overly sweet cocktails!).
PS – In other margarita news, check out 5 of my favorite margaritas + this watermelon margarita recipe.
Hibiscus Margarita Recipe
This is so easy to make! First, run a lime wedge along the glass and rim your glass with salt. I love Red Clay’s Spicy Margarita salts. I like to fill a glass with pebble ice, and then just add your ingredients and then give them a nice good stir!
- Two parts tequila (La Gritona is my absolute favorite – the very best, from a female-founded and run distillery).
- One part fresh lime juice
- One part Cointreau
- One part Hibiscus Syrup
- Fresh lime wedge
I love love love hibiscus margaritas!! They are my go-to order at our local Mexican restaurant. Will definitely try out the syrup!
It’s so good! It’s not too sweet which I appreciate!
One way I will add hibiscus to cocktails/drinks with less sugar is to buy dried hibiscus flowers at the farmers’ market and brew them into a tea. It can be a little bitter on its own, but I find if you use it in a cocktail it doesn’t need any added sweetener. I haven’t tried it yet in margaritas but that is now next on my list!
Super smart! You can totally make a tee and then use that as the base for the margarita! I just opted for the syrup for ease. (Syrup is not too sweet for the record!!)
Glad to hear it isn’t too sweet! That’s my concern about pretty much any syrup. If you’re into iced tea, Capresso makes an affordable iced tea brewer that I use often. Highly recommend for anyone living in a hot climate (I’m in AZ where it might be dry heat but it’s a refreshing 106 today!).
That sounds like a great investment!!!
This looks delicious!
