Bug Juice

Hibiscus Tea with Lime

“Hibiscus Tea with Lime” from Whole Living

When I was a little girl, and I mean a very little girl, I used to love brightly colored sweet drinks. Most little kids do. And where I grew up we didn’t have access to a ton of things like Kool-Aid and bottled drinks unless we went somewhere special. What we did have is karkadé, also known as hibiscus tea. It’s a bright or dark red and full of sugar or honey and can be flavored with ginger or lime or whatever else makes sense.

My grandparents always called things like Kool-Aid “bug juice” but I think that this flower tea makes a much more convincing and delicious version of that.
