Why I love this hibiscus pineapple bourbon cocktail

Normally, I gravitate towards bourbon and whiskeys in the winter months, but lately I’ve been inspired by tiki cocktails so I thought I’d give bourbon a tropical twist while I embrace the warm weather ahead.

My sister recently came back from Hawaii raving about this pineapple hibiscus tea that she had while on vacation, and even though I hadn’t tried it myself, I used it as inspiration for this cocktail.

We already had hibiscus syrup on hand, I paired it with a little pineapple juice and some fresh mint. It was a dreamy combination and it made the most beautiful purple cocktail.
