Blood Orange and Sage Margarita from Dry

Dry Margarita

There is never a wrong time for a margarita, especially when it’s sans alcohol. This mocktail’s festive appearance has a delightful depth beyond its citrus flavor with hibiscus and sage.

Blood Orange and Sage Margarita

Serves 1




chilled coupe

4 ounces (125 ml) blood orange juice

1 ounce (30 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice

½ ounce (15 ml) hibiscus syrup

3 sage leaves

Ice cubes

Wedge of lime and himalayan salt (optional)


1. Put the blood orange juice, lime juice, hibiscus syrup, and 2 of the sage leaves in a shaker with ice, and shake until chilled.

2. If you like a salt rim, run a wedge of lime around the rim of the chilled glass and dip it in a saucer spread with salt.

3. Strain the mixture into the glass and garnish with the third sage leaf.
