How To Make A Hibiscus Coconut Margarita
First, gather all the ingredients to create the hibiscus coconut margarita. You will need tequila, triple sec, lime juice, cream of coconut, hibiscus syrup, salt, ice cubes, and edible flowers for garnish. If you prefer a salt-rimmed glass, moisten the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and dip in salt. Set aside to dry.
Combine tequila, triple sec, lime juice, hibiscus syrup, and cream of coconut in a cocktail shaker. Ensure that you use freshly squeezed lime juice to achieve the perfect combination of sweet and sour. Add ice to the shaker until it is about three-quarters full. Shake well for about 20-30 seconds until it is well-chilled.
Fill your prepared glass with ice and strain the cocktail mixture into the glass. Garnish with a lime wheel and fresh hibiscus flowers to create a tropical vibe!
