  1. Probably best to move this to the NYC board. Also, if you can still edit the topic you should put Hibiscus Cordial in there so that people will see it at a glance. Probably get a better hit rate that way.

        Kalustyan does not carry alcoholic beverages

        1. re: thegforceny

          If the OP is seeking a simple syrup type of cordial, then the suggestion works. Cordial isn't always alcoholic... Kalustyan's carries items like elderflower cordial, ginger cordial, and hibiscus grenadine. Not sure if they carry hibiscus cordial (I don't see it on their site), but they carry many other cordials.

      2. Are you looking for the liqueur? i.e alcohol

        If so, does this help?

        Google for the various brands and then see if their websites have retail locators, as Hum does.

          Thanks so much, I'll definitely check out the site.
          BTW the cocktail I'm planning to make states the following : 1½ ounces blanco tequila
          1 ounce hibiscus cordial (or high-quality grenadine)
          ½ ounce fresh grapefruit juice
          ½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
          Lime wheel for garnish (optional)

            so you're making the "ain't that a daisy" from fiola. well i will say its a great choice, truly delicious, although i felt it was even better upping the tequila to a full 2 ounces and reducing the cordial/grenadine to about 3/4 of an ouce. fwiw made one with homemade grenadine and it turned out great. that may be your best/easiest option.
