Packed with sweet elderberry and antioxidant-rich hibiscus in a honey lemon base, this drink makes for the perfect way to cool off.
ELDERBERRY HIBISCUS COOLER
Cold and flu-fighting sweet elderberry and antioxidant-rich tart hibiscus in a honey lemon base? This is always a winner for a party.
1 C honey simple syrup
1/3 C dried elderberries
6-8 dried hibiscus flowers
1 C lemon juice
5 C water
Honey Simple Syrup:
1 C honey
1 C water
Bring the cup of water to a boil. Add honey until dissolved to make a simple syrup.
Prepare the honey simple syrup, as per above. Add the lemon juice, water, elderberries, and hibiscus. Let the herbs steep at least two hours; it will turn the drink a beautiful rich pink color (antioxidants at work!). Serve chilled.
