A glass of Refreshing Hibiscus Mocktail

Refreshing Hibiscus Mocktail

  • Category Mocktails
  • Cuisine -


  • 3 bags of hibiscus tea or 1 tablespoon loose hibiscus tea
  • 3 cups (24 ounces) water
  • 2 small limes (about 4 tablespoons lime juice), plus lime rounds for garnish
  • Topo Chico Sparkling Mineral Water
  • Ice, for serving

Honey Simple Syrup

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons water


To prepare the tea component, heat the water to a low simmer, either in a tea pot or in a saucepan on the stovetop. Steep the tea in the hot water for 3 minutes, then remove the bags (or strain off the loose tea). Set the tea aside to cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes. 

To make the honey syrup: Combine equal parts honey and water (say, 2 tablespoons each if you’re only making one batch of drinks) in a microwave-safe bowl or small saucepan. Warm in the microwave or over the stovetop just until you can completely stir the honey into the water. Set aside. 

When you’re ready to serve, fill four medium glasses with ice. Fill each halfway with hibiscus tea. Top each with about a tablespoon of lime juice and 1 teaspoon of the honey simple syrup, and stir to combine. Fill the rest of each glass with Topo Chico sparkling mineral water, gently stirring afterward to combine. You may want to adjust to taste by using less lime juice or more simple syrup—totally up to you! Serve promptly.
