  • Cup Hibiscus flowers
  • ¾ Cup Sugar
  • 7 Cups Water


  • Place hibiscus flowers in seven cups of cool water.
  • Allow to sit for at least 4 hours or overnight at room temperature.
  • Add sugar and mix until it is dissolved.
  • Strain the flowers out if desired.
  • Refrigerate and serve over ice.


The hibiscus flowers will become waterlogged and sink to the bottom. If you pour slowly the flowers will stay in the bottom of your pitcher. Leave the flowers in or you can strain them out and discard. They will not affect the flavor if you leave them in.
