The zesty hibiscus and minty mint are great supporting cast members to the star of the drink, the juicy strawberries.

Ingredients

4 oz. water

1 Tbs. dried hibiscus flowers

1 Tb. Honey

1 C. chopped strawberries

¼ C. Fresh mint

Strawberry ice cubes

Sparkling Water

Mint Water

Instructions

Ahead of time, make strawberry ice cubes by adding slices of fresh strawberries to an ice cube tray and freeze for at least 2 hours until firm.

Bring 4 ounces of water to a boil.  Stir in 1 tablespoon of dried hibiscus flowers and steep for 5 minutes.

Strain the flowers and remove.

Stir in 1 tablespoon honey until it dissolves.

Place the hibiscus infusion in the freezer for 5 minutes

Put 1 cup of chopped strawberries and ¼ cup of fresh mint in a cocktail shaker and muddle thoroughly.

Add a handful of ice to the cocktail shaker, pour in the hibiscus infusion and shake vigorously for 2 minutes to blend all the flavors.

Fill a glass with strawberry ice cubes and strain the hibiscus-strawberry-mint mixture into it.

Top with as much sparkling water as desired and garnish with a mint sprig.
