How about a hot cocktail this weekend? Erin’s serving up a bright and bold Hibiscus Hot Toddy today.
HIBISCUS HOT TODDY
The Hibiscus Hot Toddy uses hibiscus and lime to brighten up a traditional hot toddy. Both provide a nice acidity to the drink and the honey helps smooth it out.
Rum works nice here, but you could also substitute a more traditional whiskey.
Hibiscus Hot Toddy
- 1.5 oz White Rum
- .5 oz Honey Syrup (see recipe below)
- .5oz Fresh Lime Juice
- Hot Brewed Hibiscus Tea
- To make honey syrup, heat equal parts honey and water in a pot until just simmering.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Combine the rum, honey syrup, and lime juice in a heatproof glass. Combine dried hibiscus flowers with boiling water and let steep for 2 minutes. Add the brewed hibiscus tea to the rum mixture and stir to combine.
