During the darkest, coldest months of the year, we find ourselves craving one thing most: sunshine. And while that particular commodity might be hard to come by, we found one that isn’t.
Enjoy as is or with a splash of AMASS Dry Gin or Vodka.
3 oz White Peony Tea (Bai Mu Dan), chilled
1 oz Hibiscus Agave Syrup
0.5 oz Lime Juice
Lime Wheel, for garnish
Hibiscus Agave Syrup:
0.5 c Hot Water
0.5 c Agave Syrup
0.5 c Hibiscus Tea, loose-leaf (or 2 Hibiscus Tea Bags)
To make the hibiscus agave syrup, bring water to a boil and steep hibiscus tea for 10 minutes. Add agave and stir to combine before bringing to a boil. Leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes on low heat. Strain mixture into a mason jar and let it cool to room temperature before using.
In a glass, pour in the chilled white peony tea with lime juice and hibiscus agave syrup. Stir together, and top with ice. Add a lime wheel for garnish, dried hibiscus flower optional.
