Hibiscus – Rose Margarita

Makes 1 drink

This is a stunning take on a classic margarita that uses hibiscus for some of the classic citrus tang, with rose adding complexity.

You’ll likely have extra hibiscus sugar left over after making the rim. Try sprinkling it on desserts (especially those featuring fruit) as a finishing touch.
