This is a good way to add some oomph to regular lemonade. I had a half pack of dried hibiscus flowers I had purchased for a hair rinse, and decided to make this Hibiscus Lemonade for the heat wave we are experiencing.
Here's how I made Hibiscus Lemonade:
1 packed cup dried Hibiscus flowers ( I have used Sadaf brand)
1 cup water
2 tbsp agave nectar
Boil the water, take off heat. Steep the hibiscus in it for 20 to 30 mins. Strain and add the agave nectar. Stir. The Hibiscus syrup is ready.
To prepare the Hibiscus lemonade, make regular lemonade to fill 2 quarts. I used store bought lemonade mix for this. Add the Hibiscus syrup. Stir well and chill till ready to serve.
