  1. 1 oz. Hibiscus-Ginger Simple Syrup
  2. 1 oz. Vodka (you could use gin, however I find the flavor is lost amongst the spice)
  3. Ice
  4. 2 oz. Club Soda
  1. To make the simple syrup: Cut a 2" piece of ginger into thin slices. Add 1 1/2 cups water, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1 large handful of dried hibiscus flowers (about 7 buds) and the sliced ginger to a small sauce pan. Bring to a low boil, cover and remove from the heat. Steep the infusion until cooled to room temperature. Strain out the flowers and ginger-reserving some for garnishes.
  2. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Combine the Hibiscus-Ginger Syrup and Vodka in a shaker with ice.
  4. Shake and strain into a martini glass and top with Club Soda.
  5. Garnish with a dried Hibiscus bud.
