Wild Hibiscus Royale

On Valentines Day you can't beat a glass of sparkly with a strawberry in it, but for something extra special try a Wild Hibiscus flower for a truly elegant and unique drink.

This is my variation of a Wild Hibiscus Royale which is served at the royal Dorchester Hotel in London. Not only does this cocktail look stunning but it tastes pretty fabulous too! Ideal for Valentines Day, with it's pink hue, this cocktail is so delicate and delicious – make sure you have enough for a couple of glasses each as trust me, you'll want it!

(To find out where to get some Wild Hibiscus Flowers have a look at their website – it has a handy little store locator which will tell you the nearest supplier to you!)

Per glass:
¼ tsp rose water
1 Wild Hibiscus Flower
Champagne, Cava or Prosecco to top up
2 tsp hibiscus flower syrup

Pour the rose water into the bottom of a champagne glass then carefully add the Hibiscus flower. Top up with the sparkly of your choice then add the syrup. Cheers!

*If you would prefer a layered or two-toned effect add the syrup to the bottom of the glass with the rose water.
