I have discovered a product that I can’t live without. How did I make it this far in life without it?
This mix of chilli, sugar, salt and hibiscus is some sort of magic concoction to which I can’t say no.
Check it out.
This irresistible mix of sweet and spicy ingredients is designed to rim a glass of ice cold margarita. You take a glass, moisten the rim with water or lime juice and then dip into the mixture. It is fabulous. Check out the photo of my homemade margarita below.
After a few margaritas, I had a bright idea. If this stuff is so delicious, surely I can stick it on anything to improve the flavour. Right?
I pulled a tub of boring vegan vanilla ice cream from the freezer and created FGV history. I cannot express how delicious this combination was. I was strutting around acting like a hero.
My future plans for this mixture include stirring it through partially-defrosted ice cream and refreezing to create hibiscus/chilli swirl, flavouring freshly cooked popcorn and using as an over-the-top sprinkle on BBQ pulled jackfruit.
