Elderberry Hibiscus Daiquiri
The Daiquiri is said to have been invented by an American engineer working in Daiquiri, Cuba in the late 1800’s. Since then this popular drink has been reinvented and enjoyed in countless iterations. Our version uses Organic Elderberry Hibiscus tea, which adds a bit of sweet tartness and showstopper colour. It’s easy to make, and even easier to enjoy!
