  • While waiting for the hibiscus infusion to cool, you can prepare the other components of your mocktail.

Let’s create the Orange Base:

  • Pour 1/2 cup of the hibiscus infusion over the ice.
  • Add 1 cup of the sweetened orange juice mixture.
  • Top off the glass with 1/2 cup of sparkling water for that fizzy kick.
