Agua de Jamaica which translates as “hibiscus water” is a typical beverage to accompany the mid-day meal in Mexico. It is sweet, tart, delicious and really refreshing all at the same time. You prepare it by steeping hibiscus flowers to produce a concentrate that you dilute with water and sweeten with sugar. It is a great alternative to soda.
2 cups dried hibiscus flowers
2 quarts water
½ cup sugar per pitcher of jamaica
