With Mother’s Day, holidays and the warm weather approaching, there’s nothing like partaking in a refreshing drink. Recently on one of my grocery shopping trips I picked up a pack of dried hibiscus flowers to use in the near future. The future is now and I’m sharing this revivifying Hibiscus Lemonade Recipe with you.
4 Squeezed Lemons
2 Cups Sugar (Feel free to use less if you’re sugar conscious. I’m not 🙂
Water (add to taste)
1/4 cup Dried Hibiscus Flowers
First let’s slice and squeeze the lemons.
Once all your lemons are squeezed add the lemon juice to your pitcher. Next we’re going to add in our sugar and fill our pitcher with water half way stir and add in the rest and stir until sugar is dissolved.
This is a 36 x 54 piece of cheesecloth. You’re going to cut approximately a 4 x 4 piece ( I left it doubled to make sure less hibiscus pieces fall through) and you’re going to cut a strip as well and use the strip to tie up the cheesecloth.
Now, place your dried hibiscus in the center of the cheesecloth.
Pull in all four corners of the cheesecloth and tie closed with the cheesecloth strip.
Drop the hibiscus pouch in the lemonade and stir.
Place your Hibiscus Lemonade in the fridge for 1 hour.
Take it out the fridge, stir well.
Now you can remove the Hibiscus pouch, but be sure to squeeze it and remove the excess flavor. We don’t waste no FLAVOR!
Place back in the fridge to chill until time to serve.
Serve it up and enjoy.
