A New Way to Margaritaville

Remember when you downed twelve margs in Cancun? Didn’t think so. This version from Pachanga Patterson, a new Mexican joint in Astoria, New York, replaces sugary mixes with hibiscus syrup for a more grown-up south-of-the-border libation.

1 oz. P&H hibiscus syrup
Club soda
