Hibiscus Sparkling Wine Cocktail

End the Night With Sparkling Wine and Hibiscus

For Valentine's Day, why buy a bouquet when you can treat your sweet one to a bottle of bubbly with wild hibiscus flowers? Dress up your sparkling wine by garnishing it with a hibiscus flower in syrup. As the flower blooms and reconstitutes in the bubbly wine, it imparts a rose-colored hue. Beyond acting as a stunning garnish, the hibiscus offers a hint of sweetness and floral flavor to the sparkling wine.

Once you've finished the glass, be sure to try the flower; it's entirely edible and tastes similar to rhubarb and raspberries, with a texture reminiscent of fruit leather. End the night with a kiss by drinking sparkling wine and hibiscus.
