Sparkling Hibiscus Cocktail

You can get dried hibiscus flowers that open up once placed in a glass and drink poured over them.  That sound just divine but I have not been able to find them so far in local shops.  Until then, I added some Hibiscus syrup to a glass of sparkling wine, and voila! Enjoyed a nice colourful glass of bubbles.

INGREDIENTS

2 tblspns hibiscus syrup (hibiscus tea with erythritol instead of sugar)

Sparkling wine or champagne

METHOD

  • Add the hibiscus syrup to a wine glass.
  • Top up with bubbles.
  • Drink and enjoy!

    Can you describe what hibiscus tastes of? I have always wondered, but never seen hibiscus syrup. Until I went to Australia, and now I can’t think why I neglected to pick some up. D’oh!

      It has a very light earthy, floral taste. Not too sweet and is quite subtle. I love the bright red colour that it yields…am going to try to use it to replace food colouring and see how that works…
