Think of this toddy as a salve for weary souls. Warming, cozy, yet vibrant enough to transport you from the humdrum of your living room, this cup of hot honey and hibiscus gives us both the comfort and brightness we crave this winter.
Hibiscus Hot Toddy
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
¾ oz Lemon Juice
¾ oz Hibiscus Honey Syrup*
Lemon twist or wheel, for garnish
Combine ingredients and add 3-4oz hot water. For best results, use ingredients at room temperature, or better yet, warm them up by putting them in a container and then putting that in a warm water bath for a few minutes before adding hot water. Garnish with a lemon twist or lemon wheel.
*For hibiscus honey syrup, make ½ cup strong hibiscus tea. Combine tea with one cup of honey in a pan over low heat. Stir until honey dissolves. The resulting mixture should be a deep purple-red color (and taste delicious!).
