AUTUMN ENTERTAINING | HIBISCUS TEA COCKTAIL

 

This gorgeous cocktail is delicious, low in sugar, and under 100 calories, too! How fabulous is that?

One of the main ingredients is Hibiscus Tea. Yes, you read that right!

I took this shot of Lisa holding a Florentine tray filled with cocktails, so pretty.

 

 

From the AUTUMN ENTERTAINING SERIES that Lisa of DeliciousTable and I collaborated on for our {meaning all of you, Lisa’s and mine} autumn entertaining {Thanksgiving too!} pleasure.

Lisa created these skinny Hibiscus Tea Cocktails to be low carb, vegan, and gluten-free. And it’s delicious, refreshing and festive, too.

 

Hibiscus Tea is supposed to have many health benefits too, relief from high blood pressure and high cholesterol, calming to the digestive and immune system, and helps with inflammation.

Even better, right, a cocktail that actually does something a little good for your body. A win-win!

I’ll admit that I’m not much of a drinker, these cocktails are perfect for me to serve. I just add a very tiny little bit of the alcohol to mine, and my friends can enjoy a “real” cocktail.

  1. These cocktails sound delicious,Lidy! I’ve truly enjoyed this series and the wonderful recipes. I’m hoping to make gifts of the Palmiers at the refrigerated dough stage, wrapped in colorful plastic wrap, tied with a pretty ribbon. Then they can be sliced and baked by the lucky recipient as desired ??

  2. So happy you enjoyed it, Ginger! We’ll be shooting the Holiday Entertaining Series next week, so please come back for that one too. I am sure that your friends and family who receive the palmier a will adore them. {and you!}
