Our Spiked Hibiscus Lemonade everything I love about serving a cocktail to guests. It's simple, delicious & absolutely gorgeous!


  • 6 or 7 dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 1/2 ounces good vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces simple syrup, if you like your cocktails sweeter
  • Lemonade (homemade or store-bought)
  • Ice


  1. Place the hibiscus flowers into the hot water. Use a spoon to submerge the flowers and let them steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to help release the pigment and flavor.
  2. Use your spoon to remove the flowers from the water, reserving two flowers for garnish.
  3. Fill two rocks glasses with ice. Place a flower on top of each glass.
  4. Pour 1¼ ounces of vodka and ¾ ounce simple syrup into each glass. Fill almost to the top with lemonade.
  5. Pour the hibiscus tea over the ice and let it bleed into the cocktail.
  6. Serve as is, or give the cocktail a quick stir to distribute the tea.
