I’m a tequila girl who likes classy cocktails.Enter the Hibiscus Margarita. I love the bright pink color and the tartness of the grapefruit and hibiscus tea. I came up with this idea because I LOVE Tazo’s Passion Tea. I usually drink it in the late morning with a squeeze of lemon and honey, preceded by my cup of coffee to wake me up!
I wanted to use my favorite tea in a more fun, adult beverage. The bright flavors of the hibiscus tea are a great match for the zesty citrus flavors in a margarita Serve it in a martini glass or a rocks glass, straight up or on the rocks, rimmed with sugar or salt, personal preference is the key to what makes you happy! Cheers!!!
- 2 ounces silver tequila
- 1/4 cup brewed hibiscus tea I prefer Tazo brand Passion Tea
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice about 1/2 a grapefruit
- 1 teaspoon agave syrup or fine sugar
- 1 lime wedge
Add tequila, tea, grapefruit juice and ice to cocktail shaker.
Shake well and strain into your prepared cocktail glass.
Garnish with lime wedge.
- Use the lid of your cocktail shaker to get the seeds out of your grapefruit juice. Invert lid on top of cocktail shaker and squeeze grapefruit directly into lid, using it as a strainer.
