In our Happiest Hour series with AMASS botanical spirits, we talk content and cocktails (or mocktails)—giving you everything you need to set the mood.
As winter turns into spring, we are craving something sweeter. Enter hibiscus honey: a nectar of the gods. This week's simple, fool-proof recipe comes straight from Robby, sales director, and longtime beverage expert, at the Los Angeles-based spirit brand, AMASS. Be sure to try a pared-down non-alcoholic version.
Hibs Don't Lie
what you'll need:
2 oz AMASS dry gin
0.75 oz lemon juice
0.75 oz hibiscus honey syrup
Hibiscus Honey Syrup:
1 part strong hibiscus tea
2 parts honey
how to do it:
To make the hibiscus honey syrup, brew strong hibiscus tea and mix with honey until honey completely dissolves. Pour the syrup into a shaking tin along with the gin and lemon juice and shake with ice for 10-15 seconds or until the tin is ice cold. Strain into a coupe glass.
for a zero-proof option: equal parts lemon juice and hibiscus honey syrup on the rocks with a splash of soda water.
