sorrel and ginger

Updated: May 9, 2020

traditionally served at christmas, this recipe is sweet and refreshing and perfect for summer BBQ's. sorrel also has great health benefits. Unlike most sorrel recipes, I like to keep it raw.

did you know you can grow sorrel at home!? check out this comprehensive guide.


¾ cup coconut sugar or 5 tbsp agave (add more to taste)

3 inches ginger

2 cups dried sorrel (hibiscus)

6 cups water

1 lime, sliced

1 orange, sliced

10 whole allspice berries

5 cloves

1 cinnamon stick

Sparkling water


1. blend the ginger, water and sugar

2. in a large pot, combine with all other ingredients except the lime and sparkling water and leave to simmer on a very low heat for an hour. to keep it raw you can alternatively steep covered in the fridge for 4-6 hours, or overnight.

3. strain the mixture, reserving the liquid.

4. fill up a glass half way and top with sparkling water. Sweeten to taste if necessary.

serve over ice with a slice of fresh lime.

this goes EXTREMELY well with rum…
