Ingredients

  • 1 hibiscus tea bag
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk (I used unsweetened, but you can also use sweetened, and lower the amount of simple syrup.)
  • 1 scoop fresh blackberries (or freeze-dried whole blackberries)
  • ice cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon green coffee extract (this is optional, and it’ll add caffeine to your drink)
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup (or sugar. You can add more or less according to your personal taste.)

Instructions

  • Place the hibiscus tea bag in a cup and add hot water.
  • (Optional) Add the green coffee extract to the tea. (You can skip this ingredient and it won’t affect the flavor.)
  • Let the tea steep for 5 minutes and chill in the refrigerator.
  • Add ice to a cocktail shaker, then pour in chilled hibiscus tea and coconut milk.
  • Secure the lid. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on each end) and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. (You can use a mason jar with a lid if you don’t have a shaker. Don’t skip this step, otherwise the coconut milk will curdle when mixed with acidic hibiscus tea.)
  • Fill a glass halfway with blackberries and ice.
  • Strain the mixture into the glass. Garnish with more blackberries.

Notes

  • If you use the green coffee bean pills, you’ll need to pop them open and use the powder from the capsules.
  • Serve the drink immediately, otherwise, the coconut milk will separate from the tea.
