Spring is a great time for a specialty margarita, so we asked our friends at Maxwell Mansion’s Apothecary Bar to share one of their favorite margarita recipes. This hibiscus-themed version of the classic Mexican cocktail takes its color cues from the season’s bold blooms, bringing a delicious citrus flavor with just the right amount of sweetness.

Pink Dress in the Orchard


  • 2 oz. silver or Reposado tequila, infused with hibiscus, pink peppercorn and rose extract
  • 3⁄4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1⁄2 oz. orange liqueur or Triple Sec
  • 1⁄2 oz. simple syrup with orange extract
  • Salt for the rim
  • Candied hisbiscus or dried orange slices to garnish


  1. Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold and frothy.
  2. Line rim of the glass of your choice with salt.
  3. Strain the liquid into the glass to remove large ice chunks.
  4. Garnish with candied hibiscus or dried orange slices. Serve and enjoy!
