Spiced Hibiscus Vodka Sour Cocktail

{naturally sweetened}

This spiced hibiscus vodka sour cocktail is a fun and festive twist on a classic vodka sour cocktail.

Floral, laced with notes of cinnamon + ginger, and perfectly sweet tart for an easy make at home cocktail. Naturally sweetened!

– water – ginger, peeled and thinly sliced – cinnamon stick – hibiscus – lemon juice  – vodka


Add water, fresh sliced ginger, a cinnamon stick, and hibiscus to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes, until dark red in color and very aromatic.

Remove from heat, strain, and transfer to the refrigerator to finish  cooling. This step can be done well in advance if you know you’re making  these cocktails later in the week or in the evening.

Add freshly squeezed lemon juice, vodka, 4 ounces hibiscus infusion, maple syrup, and egg white or aquafaba in cocktail shaker and shake WITHOUT ice for about 15 seconds.

This is called a “dry shake” or “double shake” method, and it allows the  egg white or aquafaba to be incorporated into the rest of the  ingredients and aerate before being diluted by ice.

Now add a handful of ice cubes to the cocktail shaker and shake for another 15 or so seconds. This chills the drink and further strengthens the foam.
