Ingredients

2 oz tequila
2 oz Hibiscus simple syrup
1/2 oz Cointreau
Juice of 1/2 a lime

Our locally-grown Hibiscus Tea is both beautiful and beneficial. Loaded with minerals and Vitamin C, it steeps up a tart cup of tea that incredibly refreshing. We  used it to create the simple syrup for this margarita. That means this cocktail is healthy…right? 

Instructions

1.To make the Hibiscus Simple Syrup: combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar and simmer until the sugar dissolves and the syrup reduces a bit - about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add 1/4 cup Hibiscus. Allow to steep for 1 hour. Strain and cool.
2.To rim the glass: Crush 1 tsp Hibiscus leaves in a mortar and pestle. Combine the Hibiscus with 1 Tbl Lime Sea Salt. Place in a dish. Run a lime wedge around the rim of the class. Dredge in the Hibiscus-Lime Sea Salt combo.
3.To make the cocktail: Fill a shaker with ice. Add in the tequila, Hibiscus simple syrup, Cointreau and lime juice. Shake and pour into the salt-rimmed glass.
