Hibiscus Ginger Sparkling Cocktail

Hibiscus Ginger Sparkling Cocktail Happy Hour

I really love sparkling cocktails and am always looking for ways to really elevate them with fun flavor combinations. A good sparkler always seems to enhance a movie night on the couch or impress guests at a gathering. I thought that this particular cocktail would be the perfect concoction to mix up for The Oscars! I'd like to thank The Academy for this wonderful excuse to party on a Sunday night!

Remember last Friday's post when I incorporated RUNAMOK's Hibiscus Flower Infused Maple Syrup in a vinaigrette? Well as much as I do love salads I seriously couldn't wait to infuse that delicious syrup into a cocktail recipe. And although there are so many possibilities on how to integrate their amazing syrups into food and drink recipes, I'm thinking I'll also just pour it over some pancakes this weekend. I bet it's pretty great that way too!

Hibiscus tea is made all over the world and enjoyed for its tangy flavor. Dried hibiscus is also an edible delicacy in Mexico and other Latin American countries.  Although I only used dried hibiscus in this cocktail, it can also be candied for garnish.

I believe the hibiscus worked beautifully with the ginger in this drink! I added a little extra freshness with a small squeeze of lime (ginger and lime make a really good couple), topped it all with some Prosecco and VoilĂ -a delicious, easy-to-make cocktail that you will want to keep in your entertaining or "treat yourself" arsenal. I sincerely hope you guys enjoy it!

Hibiscus Ginger Sparkling Cocktail    (recipe makes 1 cocktail)

Ingredients:

1 1/2 Tbsp RUNAMOK Hibiscus Flower Infused Syrup
2 oz Ginger Beer (I prefer Q Ginger Beer because it has great spice)
Prosecco (or sparkling wine of your choice)
Squeeze of lime juice
Dried hibiscus flowers for garnish (Make sure you're getting an edible kind. I find mine at a local Middle Eastern Market, but you can probably find some at a specialty grocery store)

Instructions:

Combine hibiscus syrup and ginger beer in a champagne glass (I love the vintage look of Coupe glasses, especially for an Oscar party). Top with Prosecco and add a squeeze of lime. Garnish with dried hibiscus flowers or lime.

Thank you RUNAMOK for sponsoring this post!
