  • Salt solution (see note)
  • 750 ml prosecco
Hibiscus-rosé reduction
  • 750 ml rosé
  • 190 gm caster sugar

    For hibiscus-rosé reduction, stir ingredients (except rosewater) in a saucepan over low heat until reduced by half (35-40 minutes). Cool, add rosewater, then refrigerate until required.

    Strain reduction. For 1 serve, combine 40ml reduction, 5ml Cointreau and a dash of salt solution in a Champagne flute. Top with prosecco and serve immediately.


For salt solution, combine 10gm salt with 40ml warm water and stir until salt dissolves. Dried hibiscus flowers are available from The Essential Ingredient.
