This refreshing drink, made with chamomile tea, is a cooling thirst quencher on a hot summer's day. If Mexican mint marigold is not available, substitute 2 sprigs of mint and a small stalk of lemongrass cut in 2-inch pieces.
3 chamomile tea bags, or an equal amount of dried chamomile leaves
2 sprigs fresh Mexican mint marigold
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1 cup white grape juice
2 1/2 cups chilled sparkling water
1 lime, sliced
In a bowl, pour boiling water over tea and mint marigold (or mint and lemongrass). Cover and steep for at least 10 minutes. Strain liquid into a glass pitcher. Stir in orange, pineapple, lime, and grape juices. Chill. To serve, fill chilled glasses 2/3 full with juice mixture,fill with sparkling water, and add lime slices. Makes 6 servings.
