A summery, intensely fruity blend starring apple and hibiscus, a duo that lends sweet-and-sour aromas and a wonderful fuchsia hue to the liquor. The finishing touches to the blend are added by citrus peel and rose hip. Equally enjoyable hot or cold.
Hibiscus, an ornamental plant originating from countries in eastern Asia, has excellent antioxidant and antihypertensive properties. Its dried, crimson blossoms are used to make karkade, or hibiscus tea, in Egypt and the Middle East.
