For the Hibiscus Simple Syrup

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • ice
  • 85mls ginger beer

Instructions

  1. To make the hibiscus simple syrup, combine the sugar, water and hibiscus flowers in a small pan.  Turn heat to medium and stir until sugar is fully dissolved and mixture has reduced slightly, five to seven minutes.  Remove from heat, strain to remove hibiscus and let cool.  (Can be bottled and refrigerated up to 3 weeks.)
  2. To make the cocktail, fill a pilsner glass with ice.  Add ginger beer to the glass.  Slowly pour the Perry on top of ginger beer.  There should be a nice separation between the ginger beer and the Perry.  Drizzle the hibiscus simple syrup on top of the Perry.  Garnish with a dried hibiscus flower and serve immediately.
