To go along with the red theme of the Lunar Chronicles covers (each cover has a red object in it) and the various reds and crimsons described in the story, I concocted this easy-to-make drink, great for a Cinder/Lunar Chronicles get together.
Super Simple Cinder-inspired Mocktail
- 3 Cups Water
- 3 Hibiscus Flower Tea Bags (I used Tazo brand that included other ingredients as well)
- 2 Cups Ginger Ale (I used Segrams brand)
- 1/3 – 1/2 Cup Vanilla Syrup (I used Torani brand)
Put the water and tea bags in a pot together & bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat & let steep for a few minutes. Squeeze & remove the tea bags with tongs & pour the tea into a large pitcher. Let the tea cool on the counter & then put it in the fridge to chill.
Add the ginger ale & vanilla syrup & stir. Taste test & add more ale or syrup as desired.
