This Boozy Horchata Hibiscus Float recipe post was made in partnership with Ricura Horchata. Recipe and ideas are my own.

This Boozy Horchata Hibiscus Float is the drink to make when it’s just too hot outside to deal. Isn’t it ironic that just as summer is technically ending, the heat in Southern California reaches unprecedented heights for the calendar year? Yes, it’s September and yesterday it was 85 degrees. But I’m not complaining because the longer it’s super hot outside, the more days in a row I can eat ice cream to beat the heat. That’s how you think of things, right?

Made with Ricura Horchata liqueur, this cocktail is the perfect balance between fruity, tart, and creamy. It all starts with homemade hibiscus tea that’s actually super easy to make, because all you have to do is boil all the ingredients for the tea together, and then let it cool. Once you have that, scoop some of your favorite vanilla ice cream into a glass, add your Ricura Horchata, and then fill to the top with your homemade tea!

Most importantly, this drink looks as amazing as it tastes. Make it look extra pretty by adding a few fresh raspberries into the picture!
