We drink hibiscus for its tangy, floral flavor and brilliant color, both of which come to the forefront in this honeyed lemonade cooler.
(Makes four cups)
4 cups water
1/2 cup dried hibiscus
2 slices fresh lemon, + 1 for decoration
4 Tbs. honey, or other sweetener to taste
Bring to a boil water, hibiscus, lemon slices and honey or other sweetener.
Remove the boiling tea from the heat and set aside to cool for 30 minutes.
Strain and serve with ice and a quarter lemon slice per cup.
Adjust sweetening as needed.
If you find that you enjoy hibiscus as much as we do, this recipe will serve as a springboard for your own custom creations. Here are some options:
Whole Spice also sells hibiscus in a powdered form. Try mixing it with confectioner’s sugar and softened butter to make a buttercream frosting.
