Today, I am sharing my new favorite sparkling (non-alcoholic of course) drink. I had this over the fourth and fell in love! It was so refreshing and super easy to make! I highly recommend for summer cookouts, graduation parties, or if you’re having friends over. This is a sparkling Hibiscus Ice Tea. If you like other flavors of tea you could use that but you might have to boil the tea bags a little longer so just check the directions. For this recipe, you can use any type of ingredients you prefer. I like local and organic but it’s completely up to you.
