Holiday Cocktail: Gingle Fizz

gin-gle fizz cocktail recipe

Today we have a very festive holiday cocktail for you.  It is fizzy and fresh… perfect for a party or to enjoy while wrapping gifts in front of the fireplace. The gin and champagne are easy enough to find. You may have some trouble locating the Ooba and the hibiscus blossoms. If you have a Whole Foods nearby you are in luck. We found both items there. You may find them at other specialty food shops or online. The hibiscus blossoms are imported from Australia and apparently very popular there. They are a fun addition to the drink and completely edible.
