Habiscus mocktail is sweet, tart, delicious and really refreshing all at the same time. The health benefits of this mocktail include relief from high blood pressure, as well as digestive, immune system, and inflammatory problems. Works brilliantly as an iced summer tea, or a comforting hot brew in the winter.
- 1 tbsp. dried hibiscus flowers
- ½ tbsp. dried elderberries
- 1 tsp. dried rose petals
- 2 tbsp. sweeteners of your choice (swerve, stevia, erythritol, xylitol, inulin, monkfruit)
- 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
- A few thin slices of fresh ginger (optional)
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 cups filtered water (room temperature)
- 4 cups cold water or chilled soda water
- In a small saucepan, combine the dried hibiscus, elderberries, rose petals, natural sweeteners, cinnamon stick, ginger and lime juice, then pour 2 cups of water over the herbal mixture.
- Bring it to a boil over medium heat, for about 6 to 8 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
- Strain out the herbs and let it cool to room temperature.
- Add remaining 4 cups of water (or if you want to chill the drink quickly, ice and water) to the concentrate, and chill. Alternatively, you can add ice and chilled soda water for a bubbly version. (For hot hibiscus tea just pour 4 cups of hot water.)
- Serve over ice with a slice of orange or lime…Enjoy!!!
