Hibiscus Tea Punch, recipe on
Teas are high in antioxidants and big on taste, making them the perfect addition to our cocktail lineup. Hibiscus tea is a beautiful hue with a fruity and floral flavour. You can also use a tea that combines hibiscus with other fruits such as cherry, mandarin or lemon, for a more fruit-forward punch.
1 To a pitcher or punch bowl, add 1½ cups (375 mL) gin, 3 cups (750 mL) chilled hibiscus tea, 1 cup (250 mL) lemon juice and 1 cup (250 mL) Simple Syrup (recipe on page 222). Stir to mix. Before serving, add 1 cup (250 mL) raspberries, 1 cup (250 mL) blueberries and 2 cups (500 mL) chilled sparkling water. Pour into glasses with ice, distributing berries, and garnish each with a rosemary sprig.
