Christmas Eve

daddy is hopped up on ginseng and rye....
1 oz Rye, Wild Turkey
1 oz Ginseng Tea, Il Hwa Ginseng Extra
12 oz Drambuie
1 t Wild hibiscus syrup, The Wild Hibiscus Flower Company
Instructions
Shake on ice, strain in glass of choice. Garnish with Candied Hibiscus Flower (from the jar that is the source of the Hibiscus Syrup!).
Notes
I had considered the hibiscus flower/syrup but it was about $20 online and costly to be wrong. However, The Fresh Market has is locally for $5....and it wasn't an error. Well worth $5! A dash of Angostura or other favorite bitters is an attractive option.
