A beautifully presented jar containing 11 Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup with 8 page cocktail guide on the lid. You will love our Wild Hibiscus Flowers with their vibrant crimson color and delicious raspberry & rhubarb flavor, perfect for your next dinner party or special occasion (or just as an excuse to crack open the bubbly!)

Serve as a classic champagne cocktail, simply place a whole wild hibiscus flower in the bottom of a champagne flute, pour in a dash of the crimson syrup & top up with your favorite bubbly. All the bubbles stream off the flower and slowly open it up. At the end of the drink you can eat the flower with its natural flavor being similar to raspberry & rhubarb, it is the perfect accompaniment to champagne and special occasions.

This size makes a perfect gift for the girls or your colleagues at work and is suitable for that other person we all know who has everything… They will love it!

Each jar contains approximately 11 whole premium flowers in sugar syrup. There are only 3 ingredients; Wild Hibiscus Flowers, cane sugar & water. This product is handmade in Sydney, Australia. Each flower is hand packed into the jar to preserve their quality and shape. There is a slightly different shaped flower for each part of the jar to minimize damage to the flowers. All color and flavor come just from the flower, they are cooked in the jar and vacuum sealed which gives them a long shelf life of 2 years from the date of manufacture.

We did this and they do look really cool.  And they taste good too!  The only thing to be aware of is they actually turn the champagne a pink color, especially if you add some of the syrup.

I was going to order these and posted about it a while back. One of the bees said they had received them as a gift and they did not taste good, but I read a reveiw that said that unless you spoon some of the syrup in, it doesn’t effect the taste of the drink.??? I’m going to try it out and see. There’s a video on You Tube about them. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Alright I just went to order some and there’s an $11 shipping charge because apparently it’s international? That’s absolutely insane. It says that it’s sold at William Sonoma, but it’s not on their website. Might have to go over there tomorrow!

I thought I posted on this!!!

My FSIL bought these… they made the champagne so sweet & syrupy! I don’t know if she bought a cheap brand or something, but it ruined the drink. None of us could finish it! It did look gorgeous though 🙂
