Whoever said Margaritas aren't spooky enough for Halloween, obviously never had too many of them while sitting under a scorching sun.

Seriously, while a traditional Margarita might not be identified with our favorite ghostly holiday, consider Cantina Laredo's Ghost Flower Margarita.

The cocktail is made with silver tequila and Cointreau, then finished with house-made hibiscus syrup to give it a blood-red tinge. Then the cocktail is finished with a ghostly floating flower.

The Ghost Flower Margarita is available at Cantina Laredo in Hallandale and Palm Beach Gardens all day October 31 for only $5. Or, make it at home with this recipe.

Ghost Flower Margarita

1.5 oz 1800 Silver Tequila

.5 oz Cointreau

1.5 oz hibiscus syrup

1.5 oz Margarita mix (non-alcoholic)

Shake and strain over fresh ice in a sugar-rimmed glass. Lay lime wheel on top of drink, then top with a candied Hibiscus flower.
