Drink sitting on wooden board with hibiscus flower in background and limes

It’s thirsty Thursday, and you know us gal’s here at WWWW HQ ain’t gonna hit you with back-to-back non-alcoholic cocktails. So this one is for our homies not on the sober side. Although you could substitute with a non-alcoholic version of Tequila (like this one from our friends at Ritual). Go ahead with your bad self, either way. ?


I know we’re a little late, but Cinco de Mayo always makes me want to drink a margarita. Let’s be honest the sun and beach make me want to drink a margarita. And with my new location, it’s hard not to think about. Now I know some people stay away from Tequila and trust me, as I’ve tacked on years I generally have to. Although a good margarita now and then has never hurt. Long ago are the days of Tequila shots that’s for sure! Ha! This particular Tequila from Agavemio though, I think I could sip it like whiskey. YUM! They have 3 different flavored tequilas, and they all sound amazing in my opinion. This recipe though, I went with the blood orange. It pairs nicely with the hibiscus and isn’t too over powering.


Like our other easy margarita recipe you can find here, this one doesn’t take much more effort. The most effort is making the simple syrup, and if you can simmer water you can make this. This sparkling water from Target brand Good & Gather was perfect topper for this cocktail. Us gals love the flavors of Target’s sparkling water brand for mixers in our cocktails. We’ve been loving these easy recipes, and hope you readers are enjoying them too! After all, who doesn’t like a fancy-looking drink like this with minimal effort? You’re welcome. ?

Can’t get much more tropical than this! Hibiscus margarita coming in cool and cute! Shake up or stir this fun summer drink right now!


  • 2 oz Agavemio Blood Orange Tequila
  • 1 tbsp Hibiscus Simple Syrup
  • 1/8 lime wedge
  • 1-2 cans of Good & Gather Raspberry Hibiscus Sparkling Water
  • Salt for garnish



  1. Chop up some of your hibiscus tea and mix with salt or sugar for the rims of your glasses. Which ever you prefer.
  2. With a lime wedge wipe the rim or side of your glass so your salt or sugar mixture will stick.
  3. Muddle or squeeze to death your lime wedge in your rimmed glass.
  4. Add in your hibiscus simple syrup and tequila. Give it a quick stir.
  5. Add in your ice and top off with the sparkling water.


In a medium sauce pot, bring to a light simmer water and sugar. Until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool for 2 minutes. Add in tea and steep for 5-7 minutes. Remove tea and let cool before using.

Tips & Tricks:

  • You can make your simple syrup ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator. It should keep in there for about 2 weeks.

  • If using salt (instead of sugar), use kosher salt or large rock salt (not table salt) for the rims of your glasses. These do not melt like table salt/fine salt will.

  • Don’t steep your tea in the simple syrup too long. Over steeping will lead to a bitter taste.

  • If you start with cold ingredients (i.e. cold sparkling water, cold simple syrup) your ice won’t melt as quickly. *great tip if you’re in 90 degree weather like I was.

  • Adjust the simple syrup amount to your taste if it’s too sweet- I thought it was just enough to still taste the Tequila though. To each their own 😉

I honestly will be making this again, probably tomorrow, definitely this weekend. I can’t just let my precious hibiscus simple syrup go to waste. ? I hope you get to try out this recipe too, and if you make the non-alcoholic version let us know down below!!

As always drink responsibly and take care of your self!
