  • 2 tablespoons dried hibiscus flowers (or 1/2 cup fresh hibiscus flowers)
  • 14 cup gingerroot, roughly grated, unpeeled
  • 34 cup sugar

  • cold club soda (or tonic water)

  1. Add the hibiscus, gingerroot, sugar, lemon juice, salt, and 1 cup water to a small saucepan and stir to combine. Bring just to a boil over high heat. Stir to make sure all the sugar has dissolved. Take off heat and steep for 20 minutes. Strain the syrup into a jar, squeezing the solids to extract maximum flavor. Discard the flowers and gingerroot.
