tropical strawberry hibiscus rum spitz

 It’s pretty clear that I am in spring GO mode. Even though our weather forecast is for more snow, I am determined to keep the days bright! Sooo, I thought I might share this fun cocktail creation of mine. This drink was one hundred percent inspired by fresh hibiscus flowers that showed up on my door step one afternoon. Since I have hard time finding them at my local grocery store or even Whole Foods, I order my edible flowers online from California at least once a month. A lot of you often ask where I get my edible flowers from, this place is the cheapest I’ve found, but it’s still pricy…I can’t help it though, I am edible flower obsessed.


Anyway, I’ve always loved hibiscus tea…but, I have never actually seen a fresh hibiscus flower. Have you guys? They are possibly one of the prettiest flowers EVER. I knew right away that these flowers needed to be turned into a pretty spring cocktail for Cocktail Saturday. And you guys, I could not be happier with how this drink turned out. It’s SO good and super fun too!
