Ginger Hibiscus Lemonade
Hot summer days call for cool, refreshing beverages and this one delivers! It also packs nutritive power, thanks to antioxidant-rich hibiscus, vitamin C-packed lemons, and ginger’s gut soothing, pro-digestive properties. You’ll find Simply Lemonade in our Weekly Sale from June 24th – 30th, so it’s a perfect time to make an ice-cold pitcher full of this colorful, flavorful drink!
Bring two cups of water to a boil in a tea kettle or a medium pot over medium-high heat. When the water has reached a boil, remove the pot from heat and stir in the ginger, dried hibiscus flowers, and honey. Stir until the honey has dissolved then set aside to steep for 30-45 minutes. After steeping, strain the contents through a mesh strainer, discarding the solids. Fill a large pitcher about 1/3 of the way with ice (about 4 cups of ice). Pour the warm hibiscus-ginger syrup over the ice and add the lemonade to the pitcher. Stir well until evenly combined. Serve cold over ice and garnish with fresh mint and/or lemon wedges.
