Agua de Jamaica (Hibiscus blossom refreshing drink)

As thirst quenchers, people in Mexico drink non-alcoholic beverages known as "aguas frescas". These are a mixture of ice water, fruit pulp and sugar. A true classic of aguas frescas is Agua de Jamaica, which is made with boiled hibiscus flowers.


Sugar or sweetener of your choice to taste
2 1/2 liters of water
150g dry hibiscus flowers


Place the blossoms in a pot with 1.5 l of water and bring the water to a boil. Turn down to medium heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let infuse for another 10-20 minutes.
Pour the liquid through a sieve into a large pitcher, dilute with another liter of water and add the sugar.
Serve well chilled!
The cooked flowers can be used to prepare a delicious hibiscus flower quesadillas. To do this, simply sauté the well-drained flowers with onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste. Fill corn tortillas with the cooked flowers and cheese, heat in a pan until the cheese is melted and enjoy!

Hibiscus flowers (Flor de Jamaica) are used in many mixed drinks, such as a syrup to add color and flavor to cocktails. To prepare the syrup, boil 3 cups of dried hibiscus flowers in 6 cups of water and let soak overnight. The next day, strain and simmer the liquid obtained with 5 cups of sugar over low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. The syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one month.
