Description

A refreshing summer drink made from fresh lemons and hibiscus petals


Ingredients

2 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice

10 cups of water

2 cups of sugar

1/2 cup of hibiscus syrup (recipe below)

Hibiscus Syrup

2 cups of water

1/2 cup of dried hibiscus petals

1/3 cup of sugar


Instructions

Hibiscus syrup

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil.

Once boiling, add 1/2 cup of hibiscus petals and lower to a simmer.

Simmer for 35-40 minutes until liquid is dark red.

Add sugar and allow to cool. This can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for a few days.

While the hibiscus syrup is cooling, squeeze enough lemons to yield 2 cups of juice.

In a large pitcher, mix together the water and sugar. Mix well, allowing sugar to dissolve. This can take a few minutes if your water is room temperature or cold.

Add in lemon juice and hibiscus syrup, mix well and serve over ice.

Enjoy!
