L is for Libation

With Valentine's Day upon us,  I wanted to do a special drink for those of us who will not be amongst the throngs of people in crowded restaurants with overpriced dinners and less than stellar prix fixe menus.

I had been given a jar of  hibiscus flowers in syrup as a sample at a food show and I've been dying to try them out in something,  but I needed to exercise restraint and wait for just the right thing...  Well friends, today is the day!

So bring home a bottle of bubbly, some flowers and kick back with the one you love... sipping champagne with a lovely flower dancing in the bottom of your glass.

LOVE-ly Libation

  • 4 hibiscus flowers in syrup
  • 1 shot hibiscus syrup
  • 1 shot Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
  • rose champagne

  1. Drop 2 flowers in the bottom of each champagne flute.  Evenly divide Chambord and syrup between the two glasses.

2.  Top with champagne.

Happy Valentine's Day
