As colorful as the flower it's named after this citrus infusion is a delight to the eye, and palette.


3  Mandarin Oranges - juiced
1 ½ tsp. Grenadine
1 oz. Absolute Mandarin Vodka
2 oz. Blue Curacao Liqueur


In a cocktail shaker combine: Vodka, orange juice, grenadine, and ice. Shake gently till well chilled, and pour into a martini glass. Place a spoon to edge of glass so it just tips into cocktail mixture. Slowly pour Blue Curacao into spoon allowing it to drizzle into glass under the juice and vodka separating the two vibrant colors. Garnish with Hibiscus bloom for a finish touch.
