Tropical Hibiscus Bourbon Cocktail with GUEST Jennifer Pascua

My Flower Friend Jenn returns to help me create a Tropical Cocktail- and I’m sporting my Vintage Reyn Spooner Drinking Shirt… it’s a Classic- and I couldn’t resist wearing it for creating the Tropical Hibiscus Bourbon Cocktail. The Recipe for this cocktail is a BATCH recipe- so you can create them ahead of time- and have them ready to pour for all your guests!

It's Flower Cocktail Hour- in the Tropics- as we make the Tropical Hibiscus Bourbon Cocktail- on Life in Bloom!

Tropical Hibiscus Bourbon Cocktail Recipe

Batched Hibiscus Bourbon Cocktail – Makes 4 Cocktails

¾ cup bourbon whiskey

¼ cup lemon juice

¼ cup + 2 T orgeat almond syrup

⅓ cup hibiscus elixir


In a medium size container – a bowl or mason jar – combine hot water, sugar and hibiscus powder.  Whisk until sugar is completely dissolved.

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients.  Add ice and shake vigorously for a full 10 seconds.

Strain into a rocks glass with crushed ice.

The Tropical Hibiscus Bourbon Cocktail- recipe is perfect for a Tropical Getaway in a Glass...


When making the batch cocktail, use a large mason jar with a lid to shake or stir very well with a whisk in the serving container.  Because the almond syrup is thick and the ice is cold, you want to make sure it gets distributed evenly.
