'Tis the season for colorful drinks! I'm a big fan of infused alcohol all year round, but in the winter I find myself reaching for cinnamon sticks, star anise and allspice over and over again. This drink features those plus another of my pantry staples: hibiscus. The infusion I used at home had been going for 4 days and the star anise flavor was fully developed. I loved the end result and my husband thought it was a touch medicinal. The trick with alcohol infusions is to test them as they go to make sure the result is to your liking. Labeling the container with a 'started on' date can be helpful. 

Sprinkle a few petals in for flavor and an unmatched hue that's sure to elevate the holiday cheer.  

Makes 2 servings + extra infused vodka


For the infused vodka:

For the cocktail:


  1. Combine all ingredients and let rest for at least 24 hours. 
  2. Combine vodka, simple syrup and fruit juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Shake until well blended and pour evenly into two glasses.
  4. Finish with bitters and garnish with lime.
  5. To serve, I topped mine with soda water, but the drink is also great without. Cheers!
