This recipe is from Jason Veal, the Head Distiller for Ólafsson Gin in Reykjavik, Iceland.
- 35 ml hibiscus syrup
- 30 ml fresh lime juice
- 100 ml Ólafsson Gin
- Saltverk Birch Smoked Salt
- 100 ml water
- 100 g sugar
- 10 g dried hibiscus flowers
For the hibiscus syrup, mix the sugar and water together in a pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Simmer until the sugar is fully dissolved, then remove the pot from the heat and add the hibiscus. Allow this mixture to steep until completely chilled down (appx. 30 min). Once cooled, strain the mixture before use. It will store for up to one month in the cooler.
Rim a glass of your choosing with Saltverk Birch Smoked Salt. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled and strain into your rimmed glass. Skál!
