Virgin Hibiscus Cosmopolitan

A modern and non-alcoholic take on the classic Cosmo, this mocktail is delicious and refreshing. Instead of cranberry juice, use dried hibiscus leaves.

Makes four drinks.

Ingredients

1-1/4 cups water
1/4 cup honey
6 hibiscus tea bags (recommended: Red Zinger)
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup coconut water
1-2 cups diet lemon-lime soda, chilled

Directions

Put the water and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the honey; remove from the heat and add the tea bags. Steep the tea for four minutes; remove the tea bags and let the mixture cool completely.

Pour the tea mixture into a cocktail shaker and add one cup of ice. Pour in the coconut water and lime juice, put the lid on and shake vigorously until well chilled. Strain into four chilled martini glasses, top each glass off with lemon-lime soda and serve immediately.
