Harness the power of the sun to brew the ultimate lazy drink! No need to turn that kettle on. Just fill a pitcher with aromatics like mint and ginger, bags of hibiscus tea, and water, then set it in a sunny spot. Warm rays will do all the work, and in a few hours you’ll have a perfectly pink beverage, ready to sip.
