The 'Vegetarian Ventures' blog has crafted a sweet floral drink recipe that is perfect for summer. This beautiful and delicious garden-inspired cocktail is made from St. Germain liqueur, sweet hibiscus syrup and it is topped with edible flowers.

To make your own garden tonic cocktail, you only need a few ingredients and some basic cooking utensils. To start, prepare your hibiscus syrup by combining water, dried hibiscus flowers, grated ginger and a cup of sugar. Once you have brought your syrup to a boil, remove it from the heat and let it sit for about 20 minutes. After the syrup has cooled, combine the St. Germain liqueur, vodka, tonic water and the hibiscus syrup. Before serving, add a garnish of edible flowers such as chive flowers or organic hibiscus flowers. The result is a tasty floral drink that is both delicious and aesthetically appealing.
