With the steamy days of summer right on the horizon, here's a recipe to keep handy for a refreshing cool drink.
3 cups filtered water
4 Hibiscus or Passion Tea Bags
1 cup apple or cranberry juice
1/2 orange, sliced thinly
1/2 c. fresh strawberries, washed and hulled, cut in half
Bring the water to a boil. Drop in the teabags and orange slices. Let steep. Add the cranberry or apple juice. Remove from heat. Cover and let steep for 3 minutes more.
Remove the tea bags and chill for 30 minutes.
Drop an orange slice into each of 6 glasses and add the berries to each glass. Pour the tea mixture into each glass and serve.
