4th of July and Summer Fun Cocktails 0
Here’s our suggested 4th of July summer fun cocktails for maximum enjoyment of this year’s fireworks celebration. Remember, the best patriots always have a designated driver or taxi number on hand, so everyone arrives home safely from the biggest birthday bash of the year. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
#1 Hibiscus Blueberry Mojito
Ingredients for the blueberry syrup:
1 pint blueberries
4 small limes
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
2 ounces fresh mint
Ingredients for the mojitos:
2 cups Hibiscus Tea
1/2 liter club soda
Juice of 2 limes
Mint for garnish
1 cup white rum
STEP #1 - Use your Procizion stainless steel zester to remove the bright green skin of the lime. Try as much as possible to avoid the bitter white pith of the fruit.
STEP #2 - Cut the bunch of mint in half. Reserve the top half with the prettier, fuller leaves for garnishing the drinks. Chop the rest.
STEP #3 - Place the blueberries in a small saucepan, along with the lime zest, chopped mint, sugar and water.
STEP #4 - Place over a medium flame, and simmer for twenty minutes, occasionally stirring.
STEP #5 - Drain through a fine mesh sieve. You should have almost two cups of blueberry syrup. Add one cup of blueberry syrup to a large pitcher.
STEP #6 - Heat 2 cups of water in your Procizion tea kettle and add along with ¾ cup of loose hibiscus tea of your choice to the French Press and pour hot water over the tea. Allow the tea to steep in the hot water for 30 minutes this will also allow time for the tea to cool down and reach room temperature so that the ingredients are not diluted as you add ice.
Here’s where the magic happens.
STEP #7 - In a large pitcher with blueberry syrup combine mint leaves, the juice of two limes, one cup of rum, 2 cups hibiscus tea and one half liter of club soda. Stir well. Serve over ice, with mint and fresh blueberries to garnish.
It’s amazing and will enhance any celebration. ENJOY!
#2 Green Tea Vodka w/ Lemon Aid Ice Cubes

- 2 Lemons
- Simple syrup
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.

STEP #3 - Allow the tea to steep in the hot water for 30 minutes this will also allow time for the tea to cool down and reach room temperature so that the ingredients are not diluted as you add ice.
STEP #4 - In a small pan make the simple syrup equal parts sugar and water. Heat until the sugar dissolves. If you prefer you can substitute agave syrup as a sweetener.
STEP #5 - Now to make the cocktail. In a rocks glass pour over the lemon ice cubes – 1oz vodka, 1 oz green tea, 1 oz simple syrup. Stir and adjust sweetness to taste. Garnish with a lemon slice frozen into the ice cubes as a special twist.

Hibiscus Infused Margarita Recipe 0
This hibiscus margarita recipe starts out with the hibiscus tea concentrate made from hibiscus tea, water and your sweetener of choice.
The whole process is quick and painless and yields a gorgeous, deep magenta hibiscus tea concentrate perfect for adding a floral, tart-sweet punch to your favorite cocktails. The Procizion French Press makes it even easier to create this luscious tasty base for this hibiscus tequila cocktail.
The best part about this hibiscus margarita recipe besides the fact that it’s tea-based and practically health food? THE COLOR.
Can we say perfect summer fun in liquid form? Hello, hot pink goodness.
Here is the easy step-by-step process for you to follow in making what is sure to be one of your new favorite hibiscus tequila cocktails.
Step # 1 – The first step in this hibiscus margarita recipe is to heat 3 cups of water in your tea kettle and add along with ¾ cup of loose hibiscus tea of your choice to the French Press and pour hot water over the tea. Allow the tea to steep in the hot water for 30 minutes this will also allow time for the tea to cool down and reach room temperature so that the ingredients are not diluted as you add ice.
Step #2 - Once the tea has reached the rich red color and flavor is fully infused slowly and gently push the plunger of the French Press down releasing all the intensity of the delicious tea and separating the solids.
Step #3 - Now you are ready to pour the tea concentrate into a container with lid for storage up to two weeks in the refrigerator. Add ¼ - ½ cup of the sweetener of your choice, I use agave but raw cane sugar or simple syrup to taste will also work.
The hibiscus tequila cocktail magic is about to begin.
Step #4 - In a cocktail shaker add 5-6 ice cubes and ½ cup of the tea concentrate, 1 T agave nectar, 2 oz. tequila, and the juice of 1 lime. Shake to mix all ingredients.
Step #5 - Rim the glass with sugar or salt based on your preference.
Step #6 - Fill the glass with ice, and pour the cocktail mix from the shaker into glass.
Step #7 - Finally, garnish with a wedge of lime.
Liven up your summer gatherings and enjoy!
This margarita is what dreams are made of. It’s:
& So delicious
Share this drink with friends over tacos on Mexican night – that’s what I did (you’re welcome, friends). Or, mix one up to share on a warm summer evening. They’ll be sure to love you forever. Tequila seems to have that effect on people (wink, wink). Cheers, friends!

COOK TIME30 minutes
TOTAL TIME40 minutes
Category: Beverage, Cocktail
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Mexican-Inspired, Vegan
Freezer Friendly No
Does it keep? 2 Weeks (hibiscus concentrate only)
HIBISCUS TEA CONCENTRATE
- 3 cups of filtered water
- 3/4 cup dried hibiscus flowers (find here or at most tea shops)
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup sweetener of choice (or to taste // I used 1/2 agave, 1/2 cane sugar)
FOR 2 MARGARITAS
- 5-6 ice cubes
- 1/2 cup hibiscus tea concentrate
- 1 large lime (juiced // 1 large lime yields ~3 Tbsp)
- 2 ounces silver tequila (2 ounces equals ~4 Tbsp)
- 1 Tbsp agave nectar (optional)
Instructions for the Hibiscus Margarita Recipe
- To make the hibiscus tea concentrate, bring 3 cups water to a boil, add hibiscus tea to your French Press and let steep for 30 minutes. Press the plunger to separate tea solids.
- Pour into a jar or glass container using a fine mesh strainer and add sweetener to taste. I found 1/3 cup (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) was about the right amount, using half agave nectar, half cane sugar. Stir to dissolve and let cool.
- To make two margaritas, add ice, cooled hibiscus tea concentrate, lime juice, tequila and 1 Tbsp agave nectar (optional // amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously to combine.
- Pour over two glasses with ice. We love this oversized ice cube mold for cocktails. Salt or sugar rim is optional. Garnish with a lime wedge. If too strong, dilute with a splash of sparkling water.
- Store hibiscus concentrate covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, though best when fresh.
