We love the citrusy sour flavor of hibiscus, not to mention its amazing color.


  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cut into 1½-inch pieces
  • 6 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • ¼ cup dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced into wheels

Recipe Preparation

  • Bring sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan and cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Add pineapple, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit 30 minutes to infuse syrup with pineapple flavor. Strain into a small bowl; stir in vinegar. Cover and chill shrub until cold, about 30 minutes. Cover and chill pineapple pieces until ready to use.

  • Meanwhile, place hibiscus in a small bowl and pour 1¼ cups boiling water over. Cover and let steep 10 minutes. Strain tea into an airtight container; discard flowers. Cover tea and chill until cold, about 30 minutes.

  • Set aside 8 slices jalapeño and 8 pieces pineapple for serving. Stir mint, lime wheels, tequila, lime juice, remaining jalapeño and pineapple, 1 cup shrub, and 1 cup tea in a large pitcher and chill at least 1 hour.

  • Serve in ice-filled rocks glasses garnished with reserved jalapeño slices and pineapple pieces.

  • Do Ahead: Cocktail can be mixed 6 hours ahead. Keep chilled.

Reviews SectionWoah, first review I have ever written for a recipe. I'm a college student in D.C., expectations are high, budgets are low - this takes time, but is worth it. Subbed the tequila for vodka, and successfully finished a liter of vodka at the pregame! Thank Bon Appetit!henrybalasWashington, D.C.03/20/20Really liked this recipe, and so did my friends! I couldn't find hibiscus flowers at any of my local grocery stores (am guessing others might run into that issue, too), so I found a hibiscus tea blend and used that. The result was great - there is some prep work involved here with most of the components, but since it can all be done well in advance, actually making the drink when it's time is super easy. My slight variation after my first glass was topping it with some club soda - just made it a tad lighter. And, of course, it's a beautiful cocktail with interesting flavors - perfect for a crowd. I'll definitely add this to my spring/summer cocktail rotation.
