Ingredients

  • 6 or 7 dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 1/2 ounces good vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces simple syrup if you like your cocktails sweeter
  • Lemonade homemade or store-bought
  • Ice

Instructions

  • Place the hibiscus flowers into the hot water. Use a spoon to submerge the flowers and let them steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to help release the pigment and flavor.
  • Use your spoon to remove the flowers from the water, reserving two flowers for garnish.
  • Fill two rocks glasses with ice. Place a flower on top of each glass.
  • Pour 1 1/4 ounces of vodka and 3/4 ounce simple syrup into each glass. Fill almost to the top with lemonade.
  • Pour the hibiscus tea over the ice and let it bleed into the cocktail.
  • Serve as is, or give the cocktail a quick stir to distribute the tea.

Notes

Simple Syrup: Simmer together 1/2 cup water + 1 cup sugar in a sauce pan over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool.
