Wild Hibiscus Introduces its “Inaugural Cheer” Cocktail

Richford, Vt.-based Wild Hibiscus Flower Co., in collaboration with mixologist Danielle Tatarin of Vancouver-based Designer Cocktail, has created a cocktail to celebrate the inauguration of president-elect Barack Obama. “The Inaugural Cheer,” which features Wild Hibiscus’ edible wild flowers and syrup, is a layered cocktail that looks beautiful in a champagne flute, the company says.

To mix one up for inauguration parties, you will need:

One-half cup crushed ice

One-half ounce Wild Hibiscus Syrup

One-fourth ounce fresh lemon juice

2 ounces Hpnotiq liqueur

2 ounces of dry sparkling wine or champagne

Separate the wild hibiscus flowers from the syrup; place one flower upright at the bottom of a champagne flute. Mix the lemon juice and hibiscus syrup together; pour the mixture over the flower. Add crushed ice to the mixture; pour Hpnotiq liqueur over the ice. Slowly top the drink with the dry sparkling wine or champagne. The result is a red, white and blue cocktail.
