The passion I have for sweet and savory is limitless. My discovery of hibiscus syrup has led me to try with all types of things. It doesn't work with everything and is a bit picky when trying to pair it with other flavors. The HI-Spice daiquiri is a fun version of combining the ingredients while giving it a chef feel of dashing in the various spices. Sweet and fresh up front with a little heat and umami on the end.
