Mexi-Politan

Marisa Chafetz / Supercall

If you’re interested in healthy-ish drinking but don’t want to give up your beloved Cosmo, this cocktail from Manny Hinojosa, head mixologist for Tequila Cazadores, is for you. Hibiscus tea has a tart yet sweet natural flavor that is similar to cranberry juice and requires no additional sweetener. It takes the place of the sugary juice in this take on the cocktail, which, thanks to the hibiscus, still has the Cosmo’s signature pink hue.
