Jamaica Margaritas

Jamaica Margaritas - pronounced HA-MY-KA Hibiscus blossoms can be found at Latin grocery stores. Boiling the blossoms in a sugar-water mixture and then steeping infuses more flavor than just steeping them in warm water • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup margarita and 1 lime slice) Ingredients • 1 cup dried hibiscus blossoms (about 2 ounces) • 3 cups water • 3/4 cup sugar • 1 1/4 cups tequila • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice • 1/3 cup Triple Sec or other orange-flavored liqueur • 8 lime slices Preparation
Place blossoms in a strainer; rinse under cold water. Combine blossoms, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Strain; discard blossoms. Cover and chill hibiscus mixture. Combine hibiscus mixture, tequila, juice, and Triple Sec. Serve over ice. Garnish with lime slices
