A hibiscus cocktail with a romantic link
Even the name of this cocktail evokes sensuality…and maybe a sense of danger. But we think the presentation is really what takes this hibiscus martini over the top. A cherry-stuffed, marinated hibiscus flower serves as a garnish. If you didn’t know hibiscus flowers were edible, prepare to be delighted!

A hibiscus martini with some unusual ingredients
This hibiscus vodka cocktail was invented by an Australian gourmet food company called Wild Hibiscus with a surprising specialty. Their entire line is built around hibiscus products. And they knew a website like ours, focused on romance and aphrodisiac foods, would be easily sucked in to the deliciously sensual power of their gourmet products.
It’s true. We’re suckers for a gourmet foods company with a sensual focus.
And so when they offered us a recipe that requires the purchase of their proprietary ingredient, we said “What the heck!” We think everyone should try these hibiscus products.
So, in order to make this martini recipe, you will not only need your favorite vodka and one pitted, fresh or jarred maraschino cherry but you’ll also need to get Wild Hibiscus flowers in syrup and some apple baby food. (We know, it sounds weird but it works.)
If you’re on the fence about buying the Wild Hibiscus flowers, here’s a review to help do some convincing. (We truly love them!) In this hibiscus syrup drink, one rests atop the glass like a beautiful bird of paradise. It transforms this cocktail from just another drink into an experience.
A note on hibiscus syrup
Note that the recipe calls for both hibiscus flowers and hibiscus syrup. You can use the syrup from the jar of flowers to make the drink.Click here to shop for Wild Hibiscus on Amazon.
