Sometimes on the weekends I like to have a drink.  Usually it’s just a glass of wine or a glass of champagne.   Something simple to start off the weekend.

Fun and colorful Hibiscus Cosmos are perfect for cocktail parties!

Other times I go to the liquor store on a Friday evening and look at the mini bottles up by the cash register.   I’m always looking for something different to try.  Whenever I find something I buy it and bring it home then look for recipes using it.   This past week I found Hibiscus vodka and just had to buy a miniature bottle of it.

Hibiscus is a flower.  I’ve had it in tea before and I liked the floral yet fruity notes so I wanted to give it a try.   Absolut Hibiskus is flavored with both hibiscus and pomegranate.   Just hearing those flavors led me to look for a cosmopolitan using this vodka.

I found one right away.   It has just a few ingredients and turns out to be a pale pink color.    I edged the rim with bright pink sugar, poured in the cosmo, and garnished it with an orange peel.   It’s a really pretty drink and it tastes good too.   It’s tart and fruity and perfect for girls night in.   It’s also a fun drink to make for company.
