Equipment

Ingredients

For the Garnish

  • 3

    tbsp.

    dry hibiscus flowers

  • 1 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 lemon wedge

For the Cocktail

Instructions

For the Garnish

  • In a food processor, add 3 tbsp. dry hibiscus flowers. Process into a fine powder. Pour powder into a small mesh strainer and sprinkle onto a plate.
  • Run a freshly cut lemon wedge over the side, and over the rim of a coup glass. This is how the powder will stick. Roll just the wet side of the coup glass in the powdered hibiscus.
  • Sprinkle another plate with powdered sugar. Dip just the rim of the glass into the powdered sugar to coat the very top.

For the Cocktail

  • In a cocktail shaker with ice, add 3 oz. of prosecco, ¼ oz. spiced hibiscus syrup, ½ oz. St. Germain and ¼ oz. fresh lemon juice. Gently stir, and pour into garnished glasses.

Notes

Before your cocktail party, prepare your glasses with powdered hibiscus and powdered sugar, and pre-mix the St. Germain, lemon and spiced hibiscus syrup. That way, when it’s time to serve, simply add 1 oz. of your mixer to 3 oz. of prosecco in a cocktail shaker (for 1 cocktail), gently stir with ice, pour and serve. You can even pour the champagne in the glasses, then add the hibiscus mixer for a different look.
