Reposado tequila gets a sweet boost from plump prunes and enlivened with tart flor de jamaica or dried hibiscus flowers with this easy to make homemade cordial. Mix together and let the tequila soak up the fruit and floral flavors then enjoy as an after dinner drink or cocktail with a splash of ginger beer.



2 cups (12 ounces) California Prunes

1 cup Flor de Jamaica (dried Hibiscus flowers)

3 cups Reposado Tequila 


Combine ingredients. Combine all the ingredients in a clean 1 liter jar with a tight-fitting lid. Make sure the level of the tequila is above the prunes and jamaica. Any solid ingredients sticking out above the tequila will grow mold. 

Let sit. Leave out at room temperature (preferably a dark place) for at least a week or up to 6 months. 

Strain. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and transfer to a clean container. Seal and keep in the refrigerator for up to 6 months. 

Serve. Enjoy alone as an after dinner drink or in a cocktail over ice, topped with ginger beer


Save the tequila-soaked prunes and enjoy as a boozy dessert over ice cream or with whole milk ricotta cheese. 

The Flor de Jamaica can be found in the produce section of your local Latin market or online.
