Wild Hibiscus Flowers Gift Set
Wild Hibiscus Flowers Gift Set
Blooms and bubbles
Sorry, this product is not available.
There are several ways to bring out the best in bubbly, but popping in a Wild Hibiscus Flower makes your average Kir Royale about as exciting as a pint of flat shandy. And that's because these amazing edible buds actually bloom into flowers when dropped in anything fizzy. Amazing!
Pour the sparkling wine
over the bloom
Exclusive to Firebox, the Wild Hibiscus Flowers Gift Set contains everything you need to dazzle your guests. The jar of hibiscus flowers contains eleven blooms floating in a sweet, pinkish syrup. Simply place one in a champagne flute (or other glass), pour in some of the syrup and then fill up with the delicious Tirant Lo Blanc White Sparkling Wine – or for a non-alcoholic twist you could even use sparkling water!
As billions of bubbles stream off the bud it gradually opens up into a spectacular, crown-shaped flower. And when you've quaffed your sparkling wine you can eat the booze-soaked bloom. No, really! It has a delicious raspberry and rhubarb flavour that complements sparkling wine (and champagne) to perfection. What's more, because the syrup is so delicately sweet, you can add more or less to suit your taste. Cheers!
The bud will gently open up
in the bottom of the glass
Grown in Australia, Wild Hibiscus Flowers are the best reason to open a bottle of bubbly since Bucks Fizz won Eurovision (well that skirt-pulling thing was quite impressive) and we guarantee party-goers will be gobsmacked when they see these exotic blooms in action. Use them at weddings, christenings, birthday parties - whenever.
To be honest, we find these bizarre delicacies so entrancing, not to mention scoffable, we can't resist breaking out the fizz for the most trivial of reasons – post arriving on time, Jedward being knocked out of the charts etc. - and we're sure you'll feel the same. Bottoms up!

Bought this for my Dad as a Christmas present. He recently travelled to Australia to see relatives and he was amazed to see them use these hibiscus flowers being used during a dinner. He bought a few jars back home and introduced me to them. I'm very fussy and was hesitant to try them, but they do actually taste like raspberry with a hint of rhubarb! I got this gift set as my dad said heís had a hard time finding the jar of Hibiscus flowers anywhere, so this is perfect gift for the Holiday season! It comes with a lovely bottle of bubbly. But if you donít like bubbly or going for non-alcoholic, I tried a bit with lemonade; If you add a teaspoon of the syrup along with the flower the lemonade becomes a lot more tasty! If youíre wondering if they really Ďopen upí with the bubbles, they do!
