Hibiscus Drink Recipe

There are some drinks that must be on the table in Ramadan, for me it has to be the Hibiscus drink. My only problem with it, is that if I spill, I end up staining my shirt or the table cloth inevitably, but it's so worth it sometimes. A cup of ice cold hibiscus is just so refreshing. 

What you will need:

1/2 Cup of hibiscus leaves

6 Cups of water

6 Table spoons of sugar


1. Fill a large pot with the six cups of water and leave it to boil.

2. After the water boils, add the hibiscus leaves, and reduce the heat. Cover the pot and leave it for approximately 15 minutes. Be sure to stir it every few minutes.

3. After the 15 minutes,  the water should have absorbed the hibiscus flavor and the color should be really dark burgundy, add the sugar. Stir throughly so that the sugar is fully dissolved.

4. Leave the hot hibiscus to cool down for 7-10 minutes.

5. Now it's time to pour the hot drink into a glass pitcher. Be sure to use a strainer so that the leaves do not fall into the juice. 

6. Refrigerate the drink for a good 45 minutes so that is becomes fully cool. Tip, add some ice while drinking the hibiscus, it tastes exceptionally good when it is ice cold.
