Classic Vodka Gimlet with Hibiscus Recipe | Dukkan

Classic Vodka Gimlet with Hibiscus Recipe | Dukkan

Hibiscus tea is derived from hibiscus flowers which grow abundantly throughout Egypt, but the ones that yield the best tea grow in the hot, dry climate in Aswan, Egypt’s southernmost ancient town. This refreshing summer gimlet made by Dia Bennani can be made with either a vodka or gin base depending on your preference. Either way, this cocktail is light without being overly sweet and evokes soft evening breezes by the Nile.
