The prettiest cocktail you’ll ever find is also easy! Make this ombre hibiscus prosecco cocktail recipe with whole hibiscus flowers in just minutes.
This hibiscus prosecco cocktail is perfect for basically any occasion. I made them in honor of Galentine’s day, but they would work for a New Year’s cocktail, weddings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties…
You can’t go wrong with a pink cocktail with sparkling wine in it.
If you’re looking for a recommendation, I chose Da Luca prosecco for this recipe. It’s sweet and fresh making it perfect for brunch. The color is light, making it great to get the layered ombre effect. I enjoyed the fresh citris notes and balanced sweetness alone as much as I did mixed into the cocktail recipe! Da Luca is made in Sicily, Italy, in the Veneto region. The label is actually inspired by Scopa, a card game played by families after dinner and workers in the vineyards.
A few notes about the hibiscus flowers. Yes, the hibiscus flowers are edible! They are slightly chewy, almost gummy in texture. They are certainly a specialty food item if there ever was one. I couldn’t find them in any of my local markets, but once again, Amazon came through!
They have a two-year shelf life, so grab a couple of bottles so you have them on hand when the need arises. It’s always nice to have a cocktail recipe in your arsenal that has ingredients that are easy to keep on hand. Each jar has 10-12 flowers. Consider refrigerating them so they will be chilled in your cocktail.
