Hibiscus Cocktail

Laura Friendly Hibiscus Cocktail

In honor of the New Year, I have been experimenting with cocktail recipes. After creating a few Simple Syrups earlier this month, I decided to turn these into festive Holiday drinks. One of my favorites is the Hibiscus Cocktail. It’s quick, easy, sweet and floral. The Simple Syrup can be made days ahead which leaves more time for merry mingling.

May your spirits be bright, and your New Year even brighter. Cheers!
