Wild Hibiscus Flowers for Champagne

From Down Under comes a new, exciting and sensual concept for apertifs and cocktails.

How it works: Remove one hibiscus flower from the hibiscus syrup; place flower into a champagne flute, petals facing up; and - depending on the freshness of the champagne - the flower will open into full bloom. A couple of drops of syrup adds a subtle pink shimmer to each glass. The flower is edible and has a raspberry-rhubarb flavor.

Wild Hibiscus flowers can be used to create a wide range of exciting, high-value cocktails. A mixer guide is included on top of every jar.

The wild hibiscus, Hibiscus sabdariffa, has grown for centuries among the foothills of the Australian tropical rainforest. Related to the wild rosella commonly used in confitures. 100% natural and organic.

Available in 11-flower (retail) and 50-flower (gastro) jars.

Also many amazing culinary recipes have been developed with the hibiscus flower, including champagne jellies, barbeque glazes, pavlova and cheesecake.
