Hibiscus Rum Buck

December 15, 2022

The Dry Land Distillers Hibiscus Rum Buck is a gorgeous, ruby-red cocktail that is sweet-tart and refreshing. The bar team creates this cocktail using house-made hibiscus syrup, our agricole-style silver Pure Cane Rum, and ginger beer.

The complex floral citrus notes from the hibiscus pair beautifully with the spice of the ginger. The rum balances the flavors with a pleasant vegetal depth.  The Hibiscus Rum Buck is a perfect spring/summer cocktail.

Pair this with fresh foods from the garden or backyard BBQ fair: think early season spring salads of arugula and nettle, pulled pork, coleslaw, or Polynesian dishes.



  1. Have a highball glass ready and filled with cubed ice.
  2. Add the Cane Rum, hibiscus syrup, and ginger beer to the glass.
  3. Garnish with a wheel of fresh lime, dehydrated lime or a curly lime twist on the side of the glass.
