Beverage Monday

Who knew Tequila came pink? This is Rosangel, a Gran Centario Tequila that is is mellowed for two months in port barrels then is infused with hibiscus flowers, resulting in a beautiful color.
It yields notes of ripe fruit and floral notes with hints of vanilla. Not your traditional tequila! The recipies are from their website.

Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
