Sorrel is a drink straight out of the tribe of Benjamin, and is known as a diuretic herb aiding in the maintenance of inflammation. Sorrel is more commonly known as Hibiscus, and also assists in the healthy flow of urine, and helps to treat bacterial infections.
3 cups of dried hibiscus (sorrel)
8 inches of fresh ginger
4 cinnamon sticks
Peel of 2 oranges
Agave to taste (start with 1 cup and adjust as necessary)
6 cups of water to dilute (if desired)
- Simmer all the ingredients for at least 15 minutes. Simmer for up to 30/40 minutes for deeper flavor.
- Allow to cool and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
- Strain mixture to remove herbs, peels, and other solid bits.
- Serve over ice after diluting with water if desired. You can also add rum for an amped up adult version. Enjoy!
Tip: Chop or grate the ginger for a more potent flavor. My version is a lot stronger than most. If you are afraid things may be too bold even with diluting, cut all ingredients listed in half and build from there to your liking.
