This is a wonderful alternative to the well-known classic. Slightly sweeter and fruitier than the original, it’s a great cocktail to sip on pool-side or as a pre-dinner aperitif. You can make the hibiscus syrup at home with local hibiscus flowers, and then combine with fresh orange and lime juice, French orange liqueur and premium reposado tequila.


1 ¾ oz premium reposado tequila

¾ oz Cointreau

¾ oz hibiscus syrup

1 0z freshly squeezed orange juice

Juice of half a lime


Shake all ingredients and strain over ice into an old fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
