The margarita is one of the most consumed drinks on the planet. For those who deny just how popular the drink is, consider this fact: Americans drink almost 200,000 margaritas…per hour! That is only the United States as well, and doesn’t count the margaritas consumed in other continents.

It therefore isn’t surprising to know that in 2016, a study conducted as a joint venture between Nielsen and CGA strategy concluded that the margarita was, indeed, the most popular cocktail in the United States. Considering the fact that the drink is also popular in the Caribbean and in Latin-speaking countries, it isn’t hard to see that the margarita is one of the most popular drinks in the world. Of course, with any very popular cocktail, there are many variations. The Jamaica Margarita is a popular “Caribbean” version of the margarita.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces of agua de Jamaica
    • 6 cups of water
    • 2 ounces of hibiscus flowers
    • ¾ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ ounces of silver tequila
  • 1 ounce of simple syrup
  • ½ ounce of lime juice
  • 1 lime wedge
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the 6 cups of water into a pot, and bring the pot to a boil.
  2. Add the flowers and sugar and stir for one minute, while the water is boiling.
  3. Pour into the bowl and steep for 2 hours.
  4. Strain the mixture through a sieve, and press on the flower solids to extract efficiently.
  5. Taste for preference. Add water or sugar to adjust.
  6. Cover with film and refrigerate until time to serve.
  7. Pour the ingredients over ice into a chilled cocktail shaker.
  8. Shake well.
  9. Strain into a chilled margarita glass.
  10. Garnish with a lime wedge (optional).

Equipment:

  • Noncorrosive bowl
  • Sieve
  • Pot
  • Stirring Spoon
  • Film covering
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Margarita glass

The Jamaica Margarita is often served with a hibiscus flower on top for maximum presentation. There are other variations that include triple sec and orange liqueur, but this is the most popular version. Enjoy!
