What Is Hibiscus?
Hibiscus is a flower originating in Asia and the Pacific Islands. The flowers are usually dried and made into tea, which can be consumed hot or cold.
Where To Find Dried Hibsicus
Hibiscus is generally found in teabag form at most grocery stores. You can also sometimes buy whole dried hibiscus flowers in Mexican or Caribbean shops.
Other Flavoured Syrups We Love:
- 1 cup (200 grams) white or cane sugar
- 1 cup (250 ml) water
- 2 tablespoon dried hibiscus flowers (or 4 hibiscus tea bags)
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- Add all of the ingredients to a small pot. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove pot from heat and let syrup steep for 30 minutes.
- Pass syrup through a sieve to remove the hibiscus and cinnamon. Store in a tightly-sealed container in the fridge for up to a month.
The syrup can easily be halved or doubled.
