1oz orange juice
1oz lime juice
1oz hibiscus syrup
1 dash Peychauds bitters
1 dash tiki bitters
Shake vigorously in a cocktail shaker and strain into a hurricane glass (if you have one on hand) over ice. Serves 1. Enjoy.
HOW TO MAKE THE HIBISCUS SYRUP
Add equal parts water and sugar to a sauce pot. Add one scoop of dried hibiscus petals, lime peel, and one cinnamon stick. Heat until just before boiling. Turn off the heat and let it steep for one hour, stirring every ten minutes. Strain. Let it cool. Mix it in a cocktail and store the rest in an airtight container or Mason jar until the next use!
We rolled out this deceptively easy special cocktail in honor of a New Orleans Chamber of Commerce pop-up held on June 3rd in our tasting room! Despite the name, it was truly a breath of fresh air to greet and network with professional colleagues and friends after a long year and a half of exclusive Zoom calls and our new-found reliance on blue light glasses. (They're both trendy and effective!) On the other hand, our team has been pushing through for weeks and we're exhausted. We hope your team and ours will whip up a batch of hibiscus syrup in a beach hut somewhere soon and sip on this cocktail all week. In our separate huts...to be clear. We love you guys, but we need quiet to appreciate this.
