Cherry Blossom Sour

“This is a refreshing twist on a classic sour cocktail called the Clover Club, which was invented prior to prohibition,” says Laszlow Arany, a bartender at The Setai in Miami Beach, Florida. “But instead of raspberry or grenadine, it uses hibiscus syrup to bring a touch of sweetness and to give the drink a deep crimson-pink color, symbolizing love and affection.”

Ingredients: 2 oz Brokers Gin, 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice, .75 oz Hibiscus Syrup, 1 Cup Sugar, ½ cup Dried Hibiscus Petals, 1 Cup Water, 1 Egg White, 3 Luxardo Cherries

How-to: Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, and remove them from the heat. Add hibiscus petals, and steep for 15 minutes before straining the petals. Reverse dry shake by combining gin, lemon juice, and hibiscus syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake. Discard the ice, add the egg white, and re-shake the cocktail. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice, and garnish with three Luxardo cherries.
