Super Bowl Tequila Punch
If you, our cherished readers, think the way we do, there are two things you think of when you think of Superbowl Sunday - tequila and hibiscus flowers. That's right, these things have finally come together in the form of Tequila Touchdown Punch, a recipe we just received from the fine folks at Don Julio tequila. OK, so maybe those three things don't really go together - at least not yet - but we did find out that the hibiscus grows well in Arizona, the location of Super Bowl XLII, so there's the connection.
The recipe sounds really tasty if you can get your hands on the flowers in time for the Bowl. If not, you'll have the fixings for an extreme garden party come spring. See the full recipe below.
