Michael Patton, chairman of Porter Foods, said: “The Heavenly Hibiscus Champagne Cocktail will make Valentine’s a night to remember, without breaking the bank, as a pre-dinner drink or served alongside a home-cooked meal for two”. Heavenly Hibiscus Champagne Cocktail Ingredients: 1 bottle of chilled sparkling wine or Champagne. One Rosella Flower from a jar of Wild Hibiscus Rosella Flowers from Porter Foods with some syrup to taste. Method: Drop a single Rosella flower into a flute of Champagne or sparkling wine to add further fizz and colour to the drink. The striking flower gradually opens in the glass to add a touch of class to any drink. As bubbles stream from the flower the Champagne cascades from a light pink at the top to a deep purple colour at the base of the glass, adding an impressive visual impact to any event. Once the wine is finished, you can enjoy the flower, which has a refreshing raspberry and rhubarb taste. -Ends- Notes to Editors Small jars of Wild Hibiscus Rosella Flowers are available from Porter Foods for Valentine’s Day competition prizes.
