Instead of a sports drink, Carrie Dove opts for this refreshing blend of hibiscus tea and sweet apple cider. It's also wonderful spiked with sparkling apple cider or sparkling white-grape juice.

  1. 6 hibiscus tea bags (Red Zinger)
  2. 1 quart apple cider
  1. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the tea bags, remove from the heat and let steep for 30 minutes.
  2. Discard the tea bags and transfer the tea to a large pitcher. Add the apple cider and refrigerate until cold.
Make Ahead The drink can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
