  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • Peel of a small naval orange
  • 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons Monkfruit/Erythritol blend sweetener divided
  • 4 hibiscus tea bags
  • 8 oz. tequila
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Ice

Garnish: salt rimmed glass, orange zest, lime wedges, fresh cranberries


    To make the cranberry base:

    • Combine the cranberries, sweetener, water and orange peel in a saucepan.  Bring the cranberry mixture to a boil over medium heat and simmer 10-15 minutes or until thickened, stirring often and breaking up the cranberries as the mixture cooks. Strain the cranberry mixture using a mesh strainer and set aside to cool.  At this point the cranberry gel can be refrigerated for later. You should have about a cup of cranberry gel.

    To make the hibiscus tea:

    • Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add the 4 hibiscus tea bags and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and sweeten with 2 tablespoons of sweetener. Stir to combine and chill until serving time.

    Make by the glass:

    • Fill the shaker half way with ice. In the shaker place 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cranberry gel, 1/2 cup hibiscus tea, 2 tablespoons (1 oz) of tequila and a teaspoon of lime juice. Place the lid on tightly and shake. Pour over ice salt rimmed glass filled with ice and garnish as desired.

    Make by the pitcher

    • In a pitcher combine, the cranberry gel, hibiscus tea, tequila and lime juice. Stir to combine. Serve over ice in salt rimmed glasses and garnish with orange zest, lime and fresh cranberries.
