Get the Ghost Flower Margarita at Cantina Laredo or Make it at Home with this Recipe

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.
