Hibiscus-politan

Sharing is caring!21sharesSharePin21YummlyI have been enjoying lots of hibiscus tea recently and thought that it would be a great mixer too with it’s bright red colour and slightly sweet taste.  So I used it instead of cranberry juice in a cosmopolitan.  Lovely and red and tastes less tart that the cranberry juice. I made a syrup from the hibiscus by boiling up a cup of hibiscus tea with 1/3 cup of erythtritol.  I am using dried hibiscus for my tea and infusion, but you can also get this in a herbal tea bag.   In place of Cointreau, I used a home made orange extract just to keep the carb content a bit lower. INGREDIENTS 35 ml vodka 1 cup Hibiscus syrup 3 tblspn orange extract 1 tblspn lime juice METHOD Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes. Shake and pour into a cocktail glass. Drink and enjoy! Sharing is caring!21sharesSharePin21Yummly
