Notes of hibiscus and rose enrich this cocktail with beautiful and luxurious floral notes.
All of a sudden hibiscus is crossing my path and I just had to join the fun with this gorgeous Hibiscus and Rose Spritzer. The hibiscus syrup is incredibly versatile. It is just the most beautiful colour, the rose water perfumes it and the star anise adds a bit of depth and an exotic spicy undertone.
Just omit the vodka if you want to keep the spritzer non-alcoholic and do taste it as you make it. You might want to add some more syrup if you want the drink to be a bit sweeter or more/less rose water as you prefer. The fun element with these kind of drinks is that you can experiment to your heart’s content.
Drizzle the syrup over some ice cream, mix it with some plain yoghurt or drizzle over a pile of strawberries for dessert. The options really are endless. The recipe yields about a litre and store the syrup in a seal able bottle in the fridge for up to 3 months.
