You Say Jamaica, I say Hibiscus Tea!
If you frequently visit taco trucks you might find a similar drink, called Jamaica, to pair with your warm-weather eats. I love this easy-to-make iced tea because hibiscus is full of flavor and color! My cold brew hibiscus tea is great on its own. Of course, if you wanted to spike it up with some vodka or silver tequila, I wouldn’t judge you!
If you can’t find hibiscus flowers in your local store, you may be able to find it in tea bags. Otherwise you can find them online.
Steep it, Baby!
A Simple Syrup Goes a Long Way
Drink in the Summer!
Here’s to summer!
