Cinco De Mayo, though a thoroughly Americanized holiday, is one of my favorite days of the year. Ever. For sure.
Mike and I are headed down south to spend Sunday with two of our favorite drinking buddies: my parents. I’ve been planning and practicing the menu, salivating over Pinterest, and gathering ingredients. Today I’m sharing a delicious little Cinco de Drinko libation with you: the Hibiscus Margarita.
Hibiscus flowers are packed with vitamin C, aids in respiratory health, and promotes good blood pressure among other benefits. For this recipe you can use dried hibiscus that have been soaked in hot water, or a hibiscus tea. The rest is easy-peasy….just whip up your favorite classic margarita (I prefer mine with a gold tequila for a richer flavor) and top the cocktail with a float of hibiscus tea!
The sweet, floral notes of the hibiscus are such a refreshing addition to this classic Mexican cocktail. And….you get all the added health benefits. Which is a pretty tasty bonus…
What are your plans for the fifth?
