Hibisco Disco Margarita

For our Hibisco Disco Margarita, Kilinga Bacanora Silvestre is infused with Hibiscus tea, to add a dry fruitiness that perfectly complements the bright, green apple, herbal and floral character of the Bacanora. These flavors are combined with sweet elderflower and refreshing lime juice to produce a take on the Margarita that’s as complex and enjoyable as it is eye-catching. Read More

How to make it

  • 1 – Infuse Kilinga Bacanora Silvestre with Hibiscus ‘tea’. (See Below for details)
  • 2 – Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
  • 3 – Shake hard with ice and finely strain into a cocktail glass.
  • 4 – Garnish with a twist of lime for a more ‘zingy’ nose, or leave ungarnished if you prefer.
  • Hibiscus Infused Kilinga
  • Use 4 – 5 heaped teaspoons or 4 – 5 hibiscus tea bags per bottle (700-750ml) of Kilinga. This amount will depend on what hibiscus you can get hold of, and what your flavour preferences are. Use this as a guide, then adjust to your taste.
    You most likely won’t want to infuse a whole bottle, so 1 tea bag or a heaped teaspoon of hibiscus will do you for 3 to 4 cocktails.
    Add dried hibiscus leaves ‘tea’ and Kilinga to a glass jug or bowl, stir together then leave for about an hour. Give the mix a brief stir halfway through the process, and just before straining. DO NOT HEAT THE MIXTURE – the alcohol will do the job of extracting the flavours you need.
    Once infused, strain out the hibiscus leaves using a coffee filter (ideally) or a fine cocktail strainer. If you’re using hibiscus tea bags, gently squeeze them out and remove.
    Keep your hibiscus infused Kilinga in a glass bottle or jar in the fridge to keep away from natural light and in perfect condition until ready to use.
