RECIPE: Ruby Red Holiday Hibiscus Cider

Hibiscus is a flower that can be steeped into a vibrant, caffeine-free, healthy tea (more about hibiscus).

Our friends at The Republic Of Tea have created this Christmas-red mulled apple-hibiscus cider, which gets its color from hibiscus tea. (You can buy The Republic Of Tea’s hibiscus tea online.)

Ingredients
For one large mug or two cups:

  • 12 ounces apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 hibiscus teabags
  • 1-inch knob of fresh ginger, sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick per cup
  • Optional garnish: orange triangles cut from wheels (cut an orange slice into quarters or eighths)

    Preparation
    1. Heat cider in a small saucepan to boiling.
    2. Put tea bags, ginger and cinnamon stick into an infuser (a large spice ball will do) and place into your favorite teapot.
    3. Pour the hot cider over the tea bags.
    4. Add orange juice and allow to steep for 4-6 minutes.
    5. Remove infuser and serve. Enjoy!
