If hibiscus tea is your jam, then this is the mocktail for you! Our take on a non-alcoholic hibiscus margarita is sure to impress with its flowery undertones.
Ingredients for Hibiscus Tea:
3 cups of Water
3/4 cup of dried Hibiscus
1/8 cup of Sugar
Ingredients for Hibiscus Mocktail:
Ice (5 - 6 cubes)
1 cup Hibiscus Tea
1 Tbsp of Agave Necture
Firstly, create your hibiscus tea mixture by bringing 3 cups of water to a boil. Once a roiling boil is achieved, remove from heat and add in your dried hibiscus flowers. Let this steep for 20 minutes.
Pour your tea into a glass jar while removing the hibiscus flowers with a mesh strainer. Then stir in your sugar.
Once your tea has cooled to room temperature, blend the tea, ice cubes, agave nectar, and the juice of one lime in a food processor or blender.
Pour and enjoy!
