Hibiscus Tea Arnold Palmers, Spiked or Sober

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 8 cups water divided
  • ½ cup dried hibiscus petals
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup vodka optional
  • Lemon zest and additional wedges for garnish


  • Bring 4 cups water to boil. Place the hibiscus and maple syrup in a carafe or heatproof bowl and pour the hot water over. Steep the hibiscus for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the tea mixture. Add the remaining cold water, lemon juice, and vodka (if using). Chill until ready to serve.
  • Pour the Arnold Palmers over ice and garnish with lemon zest and wedges.


If you're adding booze, you may want a little more maple syrup. I tried to make these healthier by keeping the sweetness to a minimum.
