Ingredients
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1/4 cup peeled and thinly sliced fresh ginger
  • 6 allspice berries
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • 8 berry-hibiscus herbal tea bags, such as Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • Orange slices, for garnish

Directions

Put 4 cups water and the sugar in a medium saucepan. Add the ginger slices, allspice and cinnamon. Heat until boiling and the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, stir in the tea bags, cover and let steep for 15 minutes.

Strain the tea into a large pitcher, discarding the solids. Chill until ready to serve. (This can be prepared up to 2 days in advance and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.)

Just before serving, stir in 4 cups cold water and the lime juice and orange juice. Serve over ice and garnish with orange and lime slices.
