Soak the apples and limes in the wine in a bowl overnight, covered with cling wrap. Strain.
To make the infusion, simply add 1/2 ounce lemon balm + 2 TBsp hibiscus flowers in a 1-liter mason jar. Add boiling water to the top, let sit overnight, then strain.
Add the infusion to the wine with the rest of the ingredients, adding in sweetener to taste.
Chill. Serve in a wine glass with a slice of lemon or lime and over ice, if desired. To each glass, you can add the tincture of your choice (e.g. dandelion root for digestion, motherwort for menstrual issues, wormwood for parasites) for medicinal benefits.
This is a highly cooling recipe, as aloe vera and hibiscus have cooling properties. Lemon balm is a spicy and warming herb, which helps to add a lemony taste.
For a bit of fizz, feel free to add 1-2 cans of cream soda OR, to add further goodness, 2-4 cups of your fave kombucha (something with apple, rose or berries would pair nicely here!).
