I knew hibiscus would go perfectly with gin and give the cocktail a beautiful shade of pink, so we whipped up a Hibiscus Gin Sour that’s lightly sweetened, smooth with a subtle of floral flavor. Similar to our whiskey sour, this recipe is smooth and refreshing.

I love experimenting with dried hibiscus flowers. We used them in an ice ring once and they turned it hot pink, which was awesome! 

How To Make A Gin Sour

Here is everything that’s in a gin sour:

  • Egg White – The egg white gives it a frothy layer, but you can also leave it out.
  • Fresh Lemon Juice – Make sure to use fresh squeezed lemon juice.
  • Gin – Any gin will work.
  • Chambord – A raspberry liqueur

Add all of the ingredients in a large cocktail shaker with ice. Shake very hard for 30 seconds.

Strain into a small glass over a large ice cube.

Gin Sour Glassware

 I used these for our hibiscus gin sour and I love the shape of them and that they fit a round ice cube perfectly.

They have gorgeous flatware and I’m obsessed with their Schott Zwiesel glassware because they’re break, chip and scratch-resistant stemware!

  1. Hi!! I really want to make these and am wondering if it’s 1 egg white per drink, or 1 for every 2 servings?? It’s not in the ingredient list so I’m worried I’ll use too much/little and it’ll be weird. Thank you!! These look so amazing.

      • 1 per serving?? Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly. Making these tonight for a special social distanced dinner in the garden 🙂

      • The recipe serves 2, so just 1 egg white in the recipe and you’ll get two cocktails. You also don’t have to use egg white if you don’t want. It just makes a frothy top!

  2. Hi, I would like to make this for bookclub…where should I buy the Hibiscus? I saw Hibiscus tea on Amazon?? Thank you!

    I’m a sucker for floral cocktails, especially anything with hibiscus. This is definitely much needed right now as I’m self quarantining with a toddler that needs my constant attention. Love!
