Hibiscus margarita

I have been intrigued by Bon Appétit‘s recipe for the “ultimate margarita” since I ran across it a couple of months ago, but I hadn’t found the time to try it out yet. When I ran across Sage Atelier’s recipe for a hibiscus margarita based on the Bon Appétit recipe, though, I knew I had to try it out.

Hello, beautiful.

For one thing, it’s a gorgeous drink. For another, I love the flavor of hibiscus tea, and I thought it would be a wonderful complement to the limey tanginess of a margarita. Turns out I was right — this is one of my favorite drinks in a while!

Hibiscus Margarita
From Sage Atelier; makes 2

1 hibiscus tea bag
2 Tbs light agave nectar
4 oz 100% blue agave tequila
2 oz fresh lime juice

Boil 4 oz of water and pour over the tea bag. Allow the tea to steep for 10 minutes.

Whisk the agave nectar with 2 Tbs water in a small bowl. Combine the diluted agave nectar with the tequila and lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until very cold, and strain into a cocktail glass or a rocks glass over ice. Spoon a little of the tea over the margarita so that it floats on top of the drink.
