Hibiscus-Rose Water Beverage (No Alcohol)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

From a local source. The original recipe is much more elaborate involving fresh lemongrass and steaming fresh rose petals. I made it easier for myself by substituting rose water and tubed lemongrass puree. Please feel free to adjust the proportions to your liking.

Delicious! I didn't have lemongrass puree so made lemongrass tea along with the hibiscus. Thanks! Made by a Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6.
