  • Muddler
  • Mesh strainer
  • Flip top bottle


  • ½ cup hibiscus flowers
  • 2 cups vodka


  • Remove the flower petals from the flowers and place in a jar big enough to hold the flowers plus 2 cups of liquid.
  • Add the vodka.
  • Muddle gently by pressing on the petals about 5 or 6 times.
  • Cover and let sit on the counter.
  • Begin checking the flavor at 6 hours. Mine was a desired strength at 8 hours.
  • Strain to remove the flower petals and store in a lidded bottle.



The color of the petals will determine the color of your vodka.  I used all red and pink petals because I wanted a soft pink vodka.  Try yellow and orange for a more orange colored vodka. 
This will keep almost indefinitely, but the color and flavor will fade.  I try to use all my infusions within a year.
