Tropical Strawberry Hibiscus & Rose Rum Smash.

Tropical Strawberry Hibiscus & Rose Rum Smash.

The bottom layer is a mix of mint, lime, mango juice (pineapple or passion fruit juice would be great here too!), coconut water, and rum. THEN, that top red layer…that’s the hibiscus and rose tea. You definitely want to swirl the tea throughout the drink, but it’s fun watching it slowly slide down into the mango mix. All of the flavors together make the most tropical creation. They totally make me want to hightail it to Florida for spring break…anyone with me? I wish that was happening, but as I sit here in Colorado dreaming of warmer days, pools and palm trees, at least I’ll be sipping on a tropical hibiscus smash. YES, please.Tropical Strawberry Hibiscus Ru, Spitz 

This refreshing cocktail is full of tropical flavors.
