Flor De Jamaica

.5 oz Fresh lemon juice
.75 oz Hibiscus syrup*
2 oz Hennessy Black
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Shake all ingredients over ice, and serve on the rocks in a tumbler glass. Garnish with an edible orchid. To make your own hibiscus syrup in advance, steep hibiscus for a few hours in water (beginning with hot water, but letting it cool naturally over time)—until there's a rich color and floral fragrance. Thicken the hibiscus tea concoction with raw cane sugar, in a ratio of one cup sugar to one cup water—as is the norm when making simple syrup. Season with Mexican cinnamon to taste.
