This vibrant tonic from Amanda Chantal Bacon’s The Moon Juice Cookbook is truly magical: The hibiscus acts as a natural digestive cleanser, while the goji and Schisandra berries both tone and brighten your skin as well as relieve stress. (All three ingredients are available from amazon.com.) Bonus: This tonic can be enjoyed hot, cold, mixed with sparkling water or even topped with Champagne (that’s good for you, right?).

1 teaspoon ground Schisandra berries
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons rosewater
Ice and sparkling water or wine, for serving (optional)
How to Make It
In a small saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the goji berries, hibiscus flowers and Schisandra berries. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Strain the tonic through a fine-mesh sieve set over a large jar. Whisk in the honey and rosewater, cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Serve warm or, if desired, over ice topped with sparkling water or wine.
The tonic can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
