A Hibiscus Aperol Margarita to cure all your cocktail cravings.
I’ll never tire of floral cocktails.
There’s just something about them. I can’t put my finger on it, but they’re like a cup of happiness.
If I could work flowers into every little thing I create, I so would. I think they’re perfect in spring and summer for bringing the outside warmth in, and in the fall and winter for keeping things bright and cheery when the outside looks positively bare.
I know that spring is often the season when everyone starts breaking out colorful, fruity cocktails. However, I’d like to make the argument that we should be doing this all year long. What better reminder that sunny days are ahead than a bright pink margarita? Plus it uses citrus, which is at its peak in winter. It’s a sign, don’t you think?
This Hibiscus Aperol Margarita is my own little rendition of my favorite cocktail over at Octane – a sweet neighborhood café/bar. Yes, we have lots of those café/bar hybrids in Atlanta. It’s the best. Anyways, they’ve got a divine cocktail on the menu called Bone Thugs ‘N Harmontea – brilliant, right? It’s got hibiscus, margarita, and tequila, and I couldn’t help but create my own version at home. I hope you’ll enjoy it, too!
You may want to note that this recipe makes two Hibiscus Aperol Margaritas, so you may want to invite a friend over. Or, alternatively, enjoy both for yourself! I wouldn’t blame you one bit.
