for the hibiscus syrup
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup dried hibiscus flowers
for the hibiscus cocktail
- 1 750ml bottle cava/sparkling wine
- 1/4 cup vodka
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- 1/3 cup hibiscus syrup
to make the hibiscus syrup
Place the sugar, water and dried hibiscus flowers into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over a high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium and leave to simmer for 15 minutes, until you've got a thick syrup. Stir every few minutes so the flowers don't stick to the bottom of the pan. Leave to cool to room temperature then transfer the syrup with the flowers into a jar and store in the fridge.
