Pink Drink

  • 2 tsp coconut syrup

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp freeze dried strawberries finely crushed
  • 1 tsp edible glitter
  • 1-2 tsp sugar or granulated monk fruit

Cocktail Version

  • add 1 oz coconut rum


  • Make the tea according to the package instructions and chill before using for this recipe.
  • Add all of your ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Optional: To make a cocktail, add 1 oz of coconut rum in this step.
  • For the rim, mix together the crushed freeze-dried strawberries, sugar, and edible glitter. Add to a plate.
  • Rim a glass with honey and dip in the freeze-dried strawberry mixture.
  • Pour the drink into a tall glass with ice without straining. Stir to mix up the strawberries.

Expert Tips

  • Juices: I did not include white grape juice in this recipe as I didn’t feel it made much of a difference. Feel free to add a splash if desired. White cran-strawberry juice would also add a nice flavor if you want to try it. 
  • TAZO Passion Tea: To get a close-to-perfect copycat, I recommend using TAZO passion tea. Other brands will come close, but not exact. This tea is a blend of Hibiscus Flowers, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Licorice Root, Orange Peel, Cinnamon, Rose Hips, Lemon Grass, and Fruit Juice Extract (for Color).
  • Cocktail Version: To transform this drink into a cocktail, simply add 1 oz of coconut rum to your cocktail shaker.
