Hibiscus Syrup





Yum


Hey there...

The summer is almost there and we often find ourselves searching for something cold to drink but most of the time we end up opening a bottled drink which is filled in with some unknown "Alien" names in the ingredients list...



Why not spend a few mins to make this healthy and refreshing drink which can be served hot or cold and tastes great either ways... I would say it's worth spending the time.

Below I am attaching a picture with the benefits of hibiscus...


Ingredients:

30gm Dried Hibiscus
1 cup sugar
1 litre water
1 tsp citric acid granules

Method:

Pour water into a pot and boil, add the sugar and citric acid and let it boil for 10 mins.

Add the dried hibiscus to the boiling water and let it simmer in slow flame for another 5 mins.

Switch off the heat and let the mixture sit covered till completely cooled.

Strain the hibiscus. Pour the syrup in a glass container and store in fridge for 2 to 3 months.



To make a drink add 1 part of the syrup to 3 parts of water,  squeeze a slice of lemon and serve hot or cold.

Can add some mint leaves while serving.
