Author Julie & Debbie

Ingredients

PINEAPPLE HIBISCUS SHRUB

MARGARITA

  • 3 - 4 oz tequila
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 2 oz pineapple hibiscus shrub
  • 1 oz lime
  • 4 oz water
  • coarse salt for rimming the glasses
  • pineapple wedges for garnish

Instructions

MAKE THE SHRUB

  • First make the shrub. Put the pineapple, sugar and vinegar into a pot and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer on low for 10 mins. Turn off the heat, mash the pineapple with a potato masher and then let the mixture cool. Add the hibiscus flowers. When the mixture is cool, strain it well making sure to squeeze out the pineapple. Store in an airtight jar in the fridge until you are ready to use it. The shrub can be used right away, but the flavors will meld, mellow, and get better over time.

MAKE THE COCKTAIL

  • Add the salt to a plate. Run a lime wedge around the edge of the glass and dip the glass in the salt. Add some ice to the glasses and set them aside.
  • Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker along with some ice. Shake well with the ice and pour into the glasses. Garnish with a wedge of pineapple.
  • Serve.
