La Condesa's Alma Blanca

[Photograph: Melody Fury]

This playful fresh corn cocktail from La Condesa in Austin, Texas has a creamy texture and a creeping heat from the habanero-infused blanco tequila. Muddle fresh corn from the cob for optimal milkiness and sweetness.

Note: Dried hibiscus flowers can be found in specialty spice shops, Latin markets, or online. If you can't find both varieties of sea salt, any coarse-grained sea salt can be substituted. 2 tablespoons grated fresh lime zest can be substituted for the hibiscus flowers.
