HIBISCUS LIMEADE

today we’re sharing a slightly sweet summer tea that is refreshing and hydrating! i love the vibrant color that the hibiscus tea flowers create when steeped. this could be served as is or, you could add your favorite spirit (we’d recommend gin or rum!) to make it spiked.

Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup hibiscus tea flowers
• 1 cup sugar
• 10 cups water
• 1/2 cup lime juice
• 3 sprigs mint
• blackberries as garnish

Combine 1/2 cup of hibiscus tea flowers and 2 cups of water in a small pot on medium to low heat. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Turn off heat and add 1 cup of sugar and 1 sprig of mint and steep for an additional 10 minutes.

Stirring once or twice to blend in the sugar while it’s heated. Once mixture is slightly cooled add the now infused hibiscus tea to a large pitcher. Add 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice and dilute the hibiscus with 8 cups of water. Mix well. Add remaining mint and additional lime slices to the pitcher. Serve chilled or with ice. We garnished ours with a mix between lime slices, mint and blackberries for added tartness.
