Glass Used: Footed Rocks
1 1/2 oz Bacardi 8
1 oz Bacardi Limon
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1 oz Agave Nectar
1 oz Pineapple Juice
2-3 Dashes Fee Brothers Orange Flower Water
1/2 oz Wild Hibiscus Flower Syrup (The actual syrup the Wild Hibiscus Flowers come in. )
1 Cup Ice
Mix all ingredients together and blend.
Roll an orange peel up and place inside of a Wild Hibiscus Flower. Hold together with a pick or skewer.
The inspiration for this came from my recent fanaticism with using hibiscus flowers in various forms in my cocktails. Hibiscus flowers are very common where I live, so it's great to be able to use them for something else then what many people are use to.
