Hibiscus Iced Tea Sparkler

Prep Time:

1 hour 30 minutes

Brew Time:

5 minutes

Yield:

6 cups

Luzianne® Hibiscus Iced Tea is light, flavorful and not too tart – perfect for the hints of citrus and classic Southern mint flavor in this sparkling summertime drink. Serve any time of day, from brunch to midnight snack.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water, divided
  • 2 Luzianne® Family Size Hibiscus Iced Tea bags
  • ¼ cup honey, or more, to taste
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, lightly crushed to release flavor
  • 2 cups sparkling water
  • 1 lemon, de-seeded and cut into 8 wedges
  • Fresh mint leaves and lemon wedges, for garnish, optional

Directions

  1. In a medium pot, bring 2 cups water to a boil; turn off heat, add tea bags and steep 5 minutes.
  2. Remove tea bags and stir in honey. Transfer to a pitcher; add 2 remaining cups water and mint. Cool in refrigerator 1 hour or until chilled.
  3. When ready to serve, stir in sparkling water. Using a strainer to catch mint leaves, pour over ice in tall glasses and squeeze 1 lemon wedge into each glass. Garnish with additional fresh mint leaves and lemon wedges.
