Your summer needs some Tart Cherry and Hibiscus Beer Margaritas in it!
- ¾ cups Granulated Sugar
- 1 cup Water
- ½ cups Dried Hibiscus Flowers
- 1 cup Tequila Of Choice
- ½ cups Triple Sec
- 1 cup IPA Beer With Fruity Notes (I Used A Grapefruit IPA)
- ½ cups Lime Juice
- ½ cups Tart Cherries, Pitted
- 6 cups Ice
Inactive chilling time: about 2-3 hours.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water and hibiscus flowers. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and let it cool completely before transferring it to the fridge to chill for 2-3 hours minimum.
Once the hibiscus simple syrup has chilled, strain it into a pitcher through a fine mesh strainer and then return to the fridge until you are ready to use.
To a high-powered blender, add the hibiscus simple syrup, tequila, triple sec, IPA, lime juice, tart cherries and ice. Blend until slushy.
Serve immediately in sugar- or salt-rimmed glasses with lime wedges. Enjoy!
