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.
¾ cup coconut sugar (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
1 cinnamon stick
Blend together the water, sugar and ginger.
In a large bowl, combine with all other ingredients except the lime and leave to steep for 4-6 hours, or overnight.
Strain the mixture, reserving the liquid.
Fill up a glass half way and top with sparkling water. Sweeten to taste.
Serve over ice with a slice of fresh lime.
This goes EXTREMELY well with rum…
