Hibiscus Rosa Spritz
I don't know about you, but sometimes it feels like the only option for a cocktail is to go out and find the nearest bar.
But then we think of all those times we've been disappointed by subpar cocktails that are made with cheap or very basic ingredients; Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to make drinks at home that rivaled what was served at your favorite bar?
Pedro Belandria, founder of The Bartrend, a popular mobile bartending and cocktail catering company from Connecticut, crafted a cocktail for us that taste's like its straight out of a luxury cocktail bar (but spoiler alert, you can make it right in the comfort of your own home).
Enter the Hibiscus Rose Spritz:
The Hibiscus-Rose Spritz is a light & refreshing cocktail made with Cylinder, fresh lemon juice, hibiscus-infused simple syrup, and sparkling rosé (because who doesn't like bubbles?). Here are the ingredients and method to making this cocktail right at home:
1.5oz Cylinder vodka
1 oz hibiscus simple syrup* (directions below)
.5 oz simple syrup
.75 oz fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients (except for the bubbly) in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake vigorously and strain into a wine glass over ice.
