Strawberry Hibiscus Sours

Strawberry Hibiscus Sours

Ahhhh.... summer is unofficially here.  And with it, strawberries!  This take on a traditional whisky sour is refreshing and just about as pretty as a flower on a summer evening.

1.5 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye
1 oz fresh squeezed lemon
1 oz strawberry-hibiscus simple syrup*
Lemon wheel garnish

Combine all three ingredients in a shaker of ice, shake, then strain into coupes.  Garnish with a lemon wheel.

*Strawberry-hibiscus simple syrup

In a mixing pot or a crock pot, combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water, along with a 15 oz package of sliced and mashed strawberries and 4 oz of dried hibiscus blossoms.  (If hibiscus blossoms are unavailable, you can use pre-packaged hibiscus tea, like "Red Zinger".)  Steep the syrup mixture until fully dissolved, then for another 30-60 minutes.  Strain out the solids and bottle.  Will keep for 1-2 months in the fridge.
