Sparkling Hibiscus Berry Cocktail

 

Sparkling Hibiscus Berry Cocktail

And just like that… it’s almost the 4th of July. Why summer is in such a hurry to go, I don’t know, but it needs to take a chill pill. Or have a Sparkling Hibiscus Berry Cocktail or two.

When it comes to making cocktails, vodka is my liquor of choice. You can pair it with just about anything.

Just like SVEDKA, this recipe is affordable, on-trend, and easily accessible. I started this recipe by brewing hibiscus berry tea and sweetening it with simple syrup. When that cooled, I added the vodka and chill in the fridge.

After MUCH anticipation, I poured it over a ton of ice, threw in some fresh berries and topped it with lemon sparkling water for a little fizz. Um, hi, can we talk about how refreshing this is?

It has SO much flavor and is perfect for the Fourth of July (and the rest of summer TBH). You seriously have to try this.

When do we use the simple syrup? The instructions don't say.

Hi, Betsy! I just fixed it! You'll add the simple syrup to the pitcher when you add the vodka. Thanks!
