Watermelon Hibiscus Daiquiri

Frozen Watermelon Hibiscus Daquiri in a glass with Traditional Medicinals organic Hibiscus tea box

Whether you’re looking to support your cardiovascular system or to cool down, a chilled glass of hibiscus tea can help.* Its rich crimson color, and slightly sweet and tangy flavor, is delightful as a simple iced tea, or a punch like the Mexican or Central American Agua de Jamaica which features jamaica tea (Spanish for hibiscus), sugar, and sometimes lime.

Inspired by the Agua de Jamaica, we’ve created this Watermelon Hibiscus Daiquiri for a refreshing warm weather treat! This recipe features our Hibiscus tea which includes blackberry leaf and lemongrass to complement the subtly sweet hibiscus, along with juicy strawberry and watermelon. While it’s called a daiquiri, this recipe can be made with or without the addition of rum.
