1/2 cup dried hibiscus flowers

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup gin

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 to 2 lemons)

1 1/2 cups tonic water


  1. Bring the hibiscus flowers, sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Strain the hibiscus syrup into a liquid measuring cup, reserving some of the flowers for garnish. Combine the gin, lemon juice and 1/4 cup of the hibiscus syrup in a small pitcher. Stir in the tonic. Add more hibiscus syrup to taste.
  3. Fill 4 glasses with ice. Pour in the cocktail and garnish with the reserved hibiscus flowers.
