This recipe makes a big batch of hibiscus tea concentrate, refrigerate any leftovers. You can also mix small amounts with lemonade for a fun mocktail for friends and family that aren’t feeling the cocktail vibe!
Pour the boiling water of the hibiscus flowers in a large dish. Allow to cool to room temperature then strain, pressing on the flowers to remove any liquid. Discard the solids. The concentrate can be stored for up to 3 days in the fridge.
Mix a drink
Rim 2 double old-fashioned glasses with salt and fill with ice, set aside.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add the tequila, St Germain, key lime juice, tea concentrate and simple syrup. Shake vigorously then strain the liquid evenly between the 2 glasses. Fill to the top with ginger beer and garnish with a slice of key lime and a hibiscus flower. Serve immediately.
