March 5Tastey summer in Early Spring
Here is a drink I tried and enjoyed during the summer and when reminders of warmer days
8Hibiscus or Red Zinger tea bags
4 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups sugar or honey
1 (25.4 oz) Sparkling cider, chilled
Lemongrass, Lemon wedges to garnish
In large container combine tea and hot water, let steep for 10 min and then and sugar or honey and chill. When ready to use add sparking cider and serve with ice and garnish with the lemon wedge or lemongrass
Lemon grass can be found at any Asian food mart or the garden center. Since we always speak of food being your medicine here is the great thing about this cooling drink.
Lemongrass is used for headaches, colds,fevers, nervous and stomachache. studies show it destroys many bacteria and fungi and is a ingredient in natural deodorant. Promotes sweating and excretion of phlegm.
Hibiscus has its own horn to toot as well. good source of calcium, manganese, potassium and vitamin C. Good for the heart and has several anti cancer constituents.
So sit down have a glass or two of Hibiscus Tea Punch and be good to yourself.
