This strawberry and hibiscus margaritas are to die for, they are a bit tart and sweet and super refreshing.
Every year, my friend from the blog HOLA JALAPEÑO hosts a MARGARITA WEEK just before Cinco de Mayo. I think it is fantastic all the recipes that all of her friends prepare. I love it; as a Mexican, it is so refreshing to see other bloggers creations on a traditional drink from my country.
Last year I also did a non-alcoholic margarita, the good thing about preparing this type of recipes is that you could easily add some tequila if you wish. I like the idea of having a super refreshing drink any time and that my kids can enjoy as well.

This strawberry and hibiscus margarita scream MEXICO from every angle. Its color is so Mexican, hibiscus “agua fresca” is present in every Mexican, and the flavors are flavors that Mexicans grow up with. Even the rim of the strawberry and hibiscus margarita is something I grew up with.
The rim for these strawberry and hibiscus margaritas has lemon juice, raw sugar, and powdered chile or Tajin chile powder.
