Transform this celebrated Mexican cocktail with bright, bold ginger-hibiscus syrup that gets mixed together with tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Enjoy with a generous squeeze of lime and drink up with friends and family on a hot summer day!


Hibiscus syrup:



  1. For the syrup: Put the sugar, water, hibiscus flowers, and ginger in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and set aside to steep for 30 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. To make the cocktail: Combine the tequila, 2 cups of the hibiscus syrup, lime juice, and orange liqueur in a large pitcher. (The margarita can be made up to this point a day ahead and refrigerated.)
  3. To serve, fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, add the some of the margarita and shake until chilled. Strain and serve straight-up in a cocktail glass garnished with lime slices. Alternatively, serve over ice in a rocks glass.

Cook’s Note

Hibiscus flowers can be found in most Latin markets and is often labeled by its Jamaican name Sorrel.
