I know this is coming late but if you are able to make this over your holiday then try it!
I made a double batch yesterday, especially since my mother was coming to visit me. She gladly drank a glass when we got home.
Now I believe I started drinking this because I have been craving the Vitamin C that this flower contains. It also has lots of minerals and is a great thirst quencher. Today it was a close to 95 degrees hot and very humid so this drink came in perfect timing.
I made this drink more diluted but you are welcome to decrease the water by half so it is more concentrated. Double the sugar or agave nectar to make it a syrup and then add it to club soda and some lime and you have a refreshing drink!
The hibiscus flowers can be found at your local international or Hispanic mart as well as the piloncillo, the Mexican cane sugar. Keep the drink as natural as possible!
