Hibiscus Simple Syrup, it’s more concentrated than the tea. This stores easily in the fridge and makes for a delicious sweetener. It also great for adding a little “pop” of color to any beverage with it’s bright pink hue. Add it to club soda, lemonade, or use it as a substitute for cranberry juice in a cosmo. Yum!~
1/2 Pound Roselle Calyces
2 Cups Water
2 Cups of Sugar (or swap for Agave or Honey for a healthier alternative)
1. In a small pot add the 1/2 pound roselle calyces with 2 cups of water, bring to a boil and then turn off. Let the roselle steep for about 20 minutes and then strain out the Calyces.
2. Typically when you making home made simple syrup there is a 1 to 1 ratio with (hot) water. In this case, you would swap the water with the roselle concentrate and mix with the same amount of sugar. Bring back up to a boil and turn off the heat
3. Pour into a clean glass jar and seal while hot. Let the liquid cool to room temperature and store in the fridge. It should last for several weeks.
