A refreshing alcohol-free beverage for any time you're craving something special! Beautiful hibiscus tea is lightly sweetened with a simple syrup made from honey and fresh raspberries. A squeeze of fresh lime adds some citrus, and a bit of seltzer gets things a little bubbly. It's the perfect mocktail for a warm sunny day.

Making This Mocktail
You're going to want to prep your raspberry syrup ahead of time, as well as the hibiscus tea if you're brewing it yourself. It's best to give everything time to be chilled so you aren't pouring hot tea over ice. I like to use these tea bags to brew my tea, but you can also make your tea from a powdered ready-to-drink option, or loose-leaf flower petals.
