Ruby Rum Buck

Matt Wencl

"Bucks refer to drinks that combine lime and ginger beer, so a dark and stormy with lime is an example of a buck. In this version, I introduced aromatic bitters and homemade hibiscus syrup for extra flavor and a blush of color. Add your choice of garnish, such as a lime twist or a fresh hibiscus flower. Serve with a straw."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine rum, hibiscus syrup, lime juice, and bitters in a highball glass. Add enough ice to bring liquid volume up halfway; stir to combine. Top mixture with ginger beer.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To make hibiscus syrup: Bring 2 cups water, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/3 cup hibiscus flowers, 1/4 cup brown sugar, a 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, and the zest of 1 lemon to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until sugars dissolve, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let mixture steep, about 5 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing mixture to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard solids and store syrup in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
