That would be really nice with hibiscus. I love hibiscus tea, especially iced in summer.

We get dried bags of hibiscus flowers when we go to Mexico, super cheap and they make great tea. I combine them with Celestial Seasonings Zingers, extra strong brew. I also grow a few hibiscus, they come in over winter. I used to collect flowers for a friend's iguana.

We made Bellinis the other day as an aperitif before lunch with friends. That is 1/3 peach pulp and 2/3 sparkling wine. Stir well, sip and go to heaven.
