- 2 ounces lemony mint gin
- 1 ounce honey simple syrup*
- ¾ ounce lemon juice
- 2 dashes rhubarb bitters
- Fresh basil leaf
- 3 ounces honey
- 2 teaspoons dried hibiscus flowers
Combine honey with dried hibiscus flowers in a small bowl and place into a larger bowl filled with boiling water. Take care not to have any water flow into the honey. Allow to sit for 20 minutes. Strain out the hibiscus flowers, leaving just the honey. Refrigerate honey to thicken.
