A taste of Mexico in a Glass
You might assume that ‘Agua de Jamaica’ is a drink from the Caribbean, but it actually translates as ‘Hibiscus Water’ in Mexico and is a popular beverage drunk as a refreshing accompaniment to a midday meal.
Sweet and tart at the same time, Hibiscus Water is traditionally made through a relatively long process of rehydrating and straining dried hibiscus flowers, but, thanks to Natur Boutique’s Organic Hibiscus Tea, it’s now super simple…
Make a pot of hibiscus tea, allow to cool, sweeten to your taste with sugar, add a squeeze of lime (optional) and pour over ice for a refreshing non-alcoholic drink.
All we need now is some Mexican sunshine!
