Hibiscus syrup

Hibiscus syrup cocktail recipes

Hibiscus syrup is made with beautiful hibiscus flowers, which give it a gorgeous bright red color and a floral tropical aroma.

If you have hibiscus tea, you can make your own hibiscus syrup. Start by making simple syrup the usual way: combine a cup of water and a cup of sugar in a pot, and bring to a boil while stirring constantly. When it’s completely clear, remove from heat and add a sachet of hibiscus tea. Steep for about five minutes, discard the sachet, and let cool. Store in a bottle or jar in the fridge for up to a few weeks.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
