This simple syrup is easy to make, but takes some time if you want to dry your own flower petals before making the hibiscus simple syrup. It is also important to note that the color of the syrup can vary greatly depending on the color of the flowers used to make the syrup. We tried some blood red flowers and our syrup came out almost black!
The hibiscus syrup is sweet (duh, simple syrup) but with a floral cranberry note, berries and almost a citrusy bite from the dried hibiscus petals. When used in drinks it can bring a subtle tangy flavor and a bold rich color. Great in cocktails and mocktails alike.
