It looks like the Hawaii State Society's sold-out inaugural ball at the Mandarin Oriental hotel is one of the hottest tickets in town. This is the organization's first time hosting an inaugural ball, and it is doing it in style. To toast Obama, who was born in the state, some revelers will be lifting a glass filled with cocktails created specifically for the event.

Richford, Vt.-based Wild Hibiscus Flower Co., in collaboration with mixologist Danielle Tatarin of Vancouver-based Designer Cocktail, has created a cocktail to celebrate the inauguration of president-elect Barack Obama. "The Inaugural Cheer," which features Wild Hibiscus' edible wild flowers and syrup, is a layered cocktail that looks beautiful in a champagne flute, the company says.

Ingredients:

- One-half cup crushed ice

- One-half ounce Wild Hibiscus Syrup

- One-fourth ounce fresh lemon juice

- 2 ounces Hpnotiq liqueur

- 2 ounces of dry sparkling wine or champagne

Recipe: 

Separate the wild hibiscus flowers from the syrup; place one flower upright at the bottom of a champagne flute.

Mix the lemon juice and hibiscus syrup together; pour the mixture over the flower.

Add crushed ice to the mixture; pour Hpnotiq liqueur over the ice. Slowly top the drink with the dry sparkling wine or champagne.
