Mojitos are one of my favorite summer drinks with all of that yummy mint and fizz, then and add to it the bright notes of Hibiscus Simple Syrup and you have one beautiful craft cocktail!
How to Make Hibiscus Simple Syrup
There is a bit of planning involved, first make up a batch of my Hibiscus Simple Syrup, though if you must, you can buy it, but it’s truly so simple AND tastes much better than anything bottled! I hope you make some, it’s wonderful in and on so many different things, check the post out for ideas.
How to Make a Hibiscus Mojito
Let’s get mixin’! Get out a nice tall glass, you’ll fill most of it up with ice and club soda, so don’t worry!
Place your mint along with a teaspoon of agave syrup (more if sweeter drink is desired) or equal amount of sugar in the bottom of the glass and muddle it; gently now, you don’t want to release the bitter part of the mint.
Keeping the mint in the bottom of the glass, pour in your rum and lime juice, gently stir with muddler.
TIP | No Muddler? Simply use the handle of a heavy wooden spoon.
Pour in your Hibiscus Syrup and again give it a gentle stir.
Fill your glass with ice — personally, I prefer crushed, it’s up to you!
Using a cocktail stirring spoon, stir to mix the liquids in the glass around a bit.
Pour in your club soda, I love these all-natural Qdrinks Club Soda’s! They are so delicious, fresh, ultra-carbonated and the perfect cocktail size!
Again, give it a gentle stir, garnish with a sprig of fresh mint, lime slice and maybe even a piece of hibiscus flower.
That’s it, go put your feet up and sip this lovely, bright, flowery and tangy summer cocktail. Perfect for a GNO at your house, sipping by the pool, lounging in a hammock, you name it, it’ll transport you to the tropics in no time. Not just for girls either guys, my husband loved this cocktail, it’s not overly sweet whatsoever!
Please sip responsibly! This recipe is for 21+ only unless making a mocktail (minus the rum).
