Sorrel drink by SweetCoolVibes

Fave memory!!
Sorrel drink is so delicious, it has a sweet tangy flavor! This drink is most popular in the Caribbean around Christmas time. I would sit at the table and help my granny cut the top part of the flower off and discard it with the green seed. The shape of the discarded part looked like a green and red acorn. I always thought it was a fruit but it is in fact a species of hibiscus. I enjoyed seeing the whole process and helping. After boiling and then straining the juice, we would add sugar and let it sit for a couple of hours, refrigerate it. We would then enjoy an icy cold refreshing glass of sorrel drink.
