On a hot summer afternoon, a light and citrusy drink is the perfect refresher. Enter the Summertime Spritz using our Rose-Colored Glasses tincture. Rose-Colored Glasses opens your heart, lifts your mood, and soothes your nervous system. The lovely flavors of Rose and Hawthorn bring you joy purely on scent alone, and blend effortlessly with the chilled hibiscus tea. Hibiscus is a great summer herb, as it is beautifying and cooling.
We love to sip on this drink while communing with nature alone, or serving for a social distancing picnic.

3 dropperfuls of Rose-Colored Glasses tincture
Juice of ½ of a grapefruit
16 oz of sparkling water of choice
Splash of hibiscus tea
Begin by steeping your hibiscus herbal tea for 5-10 minutes.
In a fresh glass, squeeze ½ your grapefruit until it’s juiced. You can filter it through a cheesecloth if you prefer no pulp, but we love the added texture.
Remove any seeds and transfer to a drinking glass with ice.
Add 3 dropperfuls of Rose-Colored Glasses.
Add a splash of hibiscus tea (or as much as you like).
Fill the rest of the glass with your sparkling or soda water of choice.
Stir and enjoy!
Bonus: garnish with dried rose petals, berries, or a slice of grapefruit.
