Hello my friends, happy Monday!  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I enlisted the help of my genius partner in crime Farra, to help me come up with a gorgeous holiday cocktail for you (and then style it out for me to photograph of course)!  Isn’t it the prettiest?  And the hibiscus are such a festive and delicious ingredient- I’ve never used them before but I’m now officially obsessed.  Like Bubba obsessed:  fried hibiscus, hibiscus kabobs, hibiscus scampi, hibiscus soup.  Hahahaha!  Ok, gotta get back to packing but one last thing before I do-  my Joss & Main sale ends tomorrow so pop over if you haven’t already!!  xx- Sarah

    Love you’re idea! I have an obsession with hibiscus. Just love the combination of strawberry and hibiscus, but I make it as agua fresca or ice pops! Never thought of adding booz! Hahah
