Absolut Hibiskus Daisy – Absolut Summer Cocktail of the Week
Today marks the unofficial start to summer at the Jersey Shore, and what better way to kick off the weekend than with a refreshing cocktail?
We're teaming up with Absolut to transform your summer! Every week we'll feature a yummy cocktail using Absolut products...and even better, at the end of the summer you could win a trip to Sweden courtesy of Absolut to see Lady Gaga's artRAVE:the ArtPop Ball!
(Can't wait that long? Text 'GAGA' to 89000 and you could be joining us for a party on June 24 at Waters Edge in Bayville where THREE lucky winners are gonna score a pair of tickets to check out Mother Monster on June 28th at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City!)
This week's cocktail is a little fruity, a little sweet, and super yummy, featuring one of very favorite Absolut flavors. Absolut Hibiskus combines hibiscus flower and pomegranate flavors with vodka, and while it's fabulous on its own, it's AWESOME with just a little help!
Let's get your Summer on the Rocks started with the Absolut Hibiskus Daisy!
- 2 oz. Absolut Hibiskus
- ¾ oz. lemon juice
- ¾ oz. simple syrup
- ½ oz. pomegranate syrup (You could probably make your own by boiling equal parts sugar and water with pomegranate juice...or save yourself the trouble and buy a bottle like THIS.)
- 1 Tbls. pomegranate arils (seeds)
- Lemon wedge (to garnish)
Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add all ingredients, give a quick stir. (I recommend stirring without the pomegranate arils and syrup, then adding them on top to get that pretty layered look!) Garnish with lemon.
