Ingredients

Silver Tequila

3-5 limes

ice cubes

6 cups of water

liter of pomegranate seltzer (you can also go with lime or unflavored seller)

0.25 cups of frozen or fresh raspberries

 Plan of Attack  Add six cups of water to a medium stockpot. When it is at a rolling boil add 2-3 ounces of hibiscus syrup (I use "More Good Hibiscus Roobius*- pictured) and the raspberries. Boil the mixture until the mixture is a deep red color and the some of the liquid has cooked down. Remove the pot from the burner, pour into a serving pitcher and put in the refrigerator to cool. At the very least, cool for 30 minutes.

 After mixture has cooled, add 8-9 ounces of tequila, the juice from 3 limes, a tray of ice cubes (with extra for serving), and seltzer (to taste).  Serve cold, poured over ice cubes  and even if you're not, you'll think you're wearing' something sweet...

 Not much is left after my dinner party!  If you're lucky you get to enjoy Hibiscus Margaritas with good company, with who you can be irreverent, loving and truly at ease. If not at the beginning of the night, then after some tequila everybody is a little bit interested in taking off their ties, putting down their phones, kicking off their sandals and laughing with their feet in the green grass. At least, this is how tequila effects the people I wanna know.   Fun Fact: To make this sea shell label from the photograph it is super simple. Hot glue a piece of burlap twine to the back of medium clam shell (you could also use an oyster or mussels shell) with the glue in the middle and both side of twines on either side being the same length. Cut a piece of paper so it fits in the bed of the shell, write your drink name, and then hot glue the label in the bed of the shell. Apply the label by making the twine into a bow onto the drinking pitcher.
