Ingredients

    • 1 jar Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup

Instructions

Add sparkling wine to a mixing bowl
Pour ½ cup of the Hibiscus syrup (no flowers) into the wine.
In a small saucepan over low heat, warm water & dissolve gelatin. Do not boil
Pour into the wine through a sieve & mix through
Place a Wild Hibiscus Flower into 6-7 champagne flutes or fancy glasses & 2/3 fill with the jelly mix.
Refrigerate overnight to set (the flowers will set in all sorts of crazy positions)
Top with a whipped cream swirl, maraschino cherry (preferably with stems) & curled dark chocolate.
Tip: Curl dark chocolate by warming slightly & using a potato peeler, Enjoy!
Tip: Canned whipped cream will do fine such as dairy whip etc.
