This bright red hibiscus shandy cocktail is perfect for all those red themed holidays! But it's also super refreshing for any summer get-together.
Beer, Grapefruit, Hibiscus
of fresh ginger
plus two tablespoons organic sugar
part hibiscus tea
(I used a Belgian Ale)
In a medium sauce pan combine water and ginger and bring to a boil.
Let ginger steep a couple minutes, then add hibiscus and sugar and remove from the heat.
Steep for four more minutes, stirring occasionally.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher and refrigerate until cold.
In a glass, combine 1 part hibiscus tea and 2 parts beer.
Garnish with a wedge of grapefruit and serve.
*To make a pitcher of Hibiscus Shandy, combine the above recipe of hibiscus tea (it yields about 4 cups) with 8 cups of beer. Serve each glass with a wedge of grapefruit.
