"Hibiscus Margarita Sour | Crafted Pour"

"This cocktail is such a vibrant and fresh one. This fun Margarita was created by Julianna McIntosh. Fun fact for those that don’t realize all Margaritas and Daiquiris are sours, just like their more popularly named Whiskey Sour cousin. I do like Jule’s addition of sour to the title with the egg white that she’s added, giving it that more typical foamy head and velvety texture.  One thing I try to do, especially as a simple Midwest guy making cocktails at home, is to keep things simple. There are a lot of great cocktails out there that call for all these different special ingredients, or syrups. But it’s just not realistic for most people making cocktails at home. I try to make things that the average person could go out and buy a couple of items if not just have the items already at home.  Case in point Hibiscus syrup: last night I made a batch of syrup in 5 minutes. Sure, I had to make it; sure, it’s not typically something that is always at your local grocery store. But there are so many different things that can be done with some dried hibiscus flowers. Adding it to tea, making a syrup, or just garnishing a cocktail with them. The great thing about buying a bag is that it will last on the shelf for a long period of time.", "undefined", "Hibiscus Margarita Sour",
