DOTW: Hibiscus Martini

The sun is out, and according to my allergies, spring is here. So, we lighten up the cocktails! Fruit is in, cream is out. I have always loved hibiscus, especially in teas and cocktails. It’s just so refreshing and easygoing. Pair it up with some great liquor, and you got yourself a winner. This one is perfect for an afternoon while grilling in the backyard, a brunch, or even a game night. Be careful, it goes down easy!

What you’ll need:

Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add vodka, Cointreau, and hibiscus syrup to the shaker, shake well. Pour contents into a martini glass. Ganish with lime slice.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
