This agua fresca isn't too sweet, so you can drink it all day long and even into the night (perhaps with vodka!) Plus, hibiscus flowers have a myriad of health benefits. This recipe is an outtake from my cookbook, Taste of Tucson. It comes from Erika and Jake of Seis Kitchen who said, "Be sure and not throw out the hibiscus flowers after you boil them, eat them instead! They are still super tasty and similar in texture to fruit leather."
- ½ cup dried hibiscus flowers
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 orange zested, then cut in half
- ½ gallon water
The yield quantities here are approximate because the liquid will condense a bit as it cooks.
