About

Ice water is generally the drink of choice in our family. However, sometimes we like to get a little crazy and gussy up our drink glasses. Those glasses always feel fancy when they sport this pretty red beverage. Ordinary iced tea just doesn't cut it with our picky glasses though. Oh no. They only feel spiffy when showing off iced tea like this, which gets a bit of tartness and beautiful color from the hibiscus leaves, and sweetness from the combination of honey, sugar, and freshly squeezed orange juice.
