For all those budding mixologists, this is THE drink for you. We know it sounds fancy, and it is… but oh so easy to make and so delicious to drink.
We started by making a quick simple syrup using Hibiscus Flower Powder, sugar and water and heating it up until the sugar dissolved, then chilled. Rim a glass with Sea Salt, pour in the prepared margarita and top with a lime wedge and a candied Hibiscus Flower. Super easy and really tasty. Get the recipe below the video.
