My Summer Beverage Obsession

Sugar Free Non Alcoholic Summer Beverage

𝗛𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆! I want to share with you my 𝘴𝘶𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 𝘣𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘰𝘣𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯…⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗶𝗯𝗶𝘀𝗰𝘂𝘀 & 𝗥𝗼𝘀𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗙𝗶𝘇𝘇⁣
⁣
Hibiscus is a cooling and refreshing tea, great for summer. (Note if you have low blood pressure, avoid or use hibiscus sparingly, as it can lower blood pressure.) ⁣
⁣
Rosemary is slightly warming, enough to keep it balanced and add a unique accent of flavour. It’s also great for circulation. ⁣
⁣
𝘐𝘯𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 & 𝘐𝘯𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴:⁣
⁣
🌺 Gather some loose-leaf dried hibiscus and rosemary. (@theherbalclinic is a good place to grab some!)⁣
⁣
🌺 Brew an extra strong batch of hibiscus & rosemary tea, at a ratio of 2:1 (2 parts hibiscus: 1 part Rosemary). I like to make almost 1 litre to have extra on hand.⁣
⁣
Let the tea cool for an hour, then put in a glass jar in the fridge to chill for a few hours. You can store it in the fridge for a week or so.⁣
⁣
🌺 When ready to drink, fill a mason jar with 1/3 tea mix and 2/3 soda water. ⁣
⁣
🍋 I like to add a squeeze of lemon juice to make it extra tart & refreshing.⁣
⁣
And yes, in case you noticed: while it may not be the 100% TCM thing to do, even *I* will put a few ice-cubes in my drink in +40 degree weather! (albeit with room temperature bubbly 😉)⁣
⁣
🍹 𝙆𝙞𝙘𝙠 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙩 𝙪𝙥 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙚𝙣𝙟𝙤𝙮!⁣
⁣
Try it and let me know what you think! Have a great weekend 🌞 ⁣
