Raspberry Hibiscus Margarita


It’s Friday and time for a nice cocktail after a long week. I’ve been experimenting in by office/bar again and have came up with a new margarita that I think you’re going to love. My husband said, and I quote “This is the best cocktail I’ve ever had.” So you might want to try this one out!


I’ve been wanting to experiment with hibiscus and make a cocktail for a few weeks now, but I also wanted to pair it with some additional flavors to really bring out the flavor of the hibiscus besides just triple sec and tequila. So for this margarita, I started out with a high quality tequila, then added some Chambord, a raspberry liqueur. Then I added some Grand Mariner, an orange liqueur and some freshly squeezed lime juice. To finish it off, I added a bit of hibiscus syrup and a hibiscus flower.


These Raspberry Hibiscus Margaritas are a perfect pairing for Old El Paso Chicken Fajitas. You can find Old El Paso Chicken Enchiladas in your grocer’s freezer. They make enchiladas at home even easier. For a complete Mexican meal, add Old El Paso rice and re-fried beans as sides too.
