Tea Cocktail: Hibiscus Highball

 

Hibiscus Highball Summer Cocktail Recipe

 

Who's ready for a cocktail to ring in summer?

The sun is shining bright and plans for potlucks, barbecues, and picnics are in the works. If you're looking for a refreshing summer cocktail to enjoy during these long, warm days, this is the one! Notes of lemongrass, tropical flowers, citrus, and mint will transport you to paradise - even in your own backyard.

This recipe can easily be made into the perfect party punch served up in a classic glass bowl with slices of citrus fruits and sprigs of mint floating on top for garnish. This is a wonderfully thirst quenching spin on spiked iced tea that will be a definite crowd-pleaser at any fun celebration!

 

Hibiscus Highball

3 oz organic Hibiscus High Tea, brewed and chilled
2 oz gin, vodka, or white rum
3 oz ginger brew

Steep and chill Hibiscus High tea. Combine with alcohol of choice and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass, top with ginger brew, and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and orange peel.

If you are making punch, mix 1 gallon of chilled Hibiscus High tea with 1 gallon of ginger brew and 2 quarts of booze. Allow your guests to ladle the punch into an ice-filled cup. Makes about 25 drinks.

This recipe would also be really delightful with a base of organic Lemon Tea or Vanilla Rooibos!
