If you have a tree full of flowering red Hibiscus, why not turn them into this delicious and vibrantly colored cordial? You will be surprised by the beautiful natural color which is created by just a few red petals in water. Fresh Hibiscus Cordial is a commonly consumed beverage in the tropics where the flowers grow in abundance - I first tried this drink in Bali, Indonesia and now every sip reminds me of lovely Lembongan Island.

Fresh Hibiscus Cordial

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 bottle of cordial

Red Hibiscus flowers

4-5 Red Hibiscus flowers
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup filtered water
1 lemon - juiced

Take off all the petals

Pick 4 -5 fresh Hibiscus flowers.

Gently take off all the petals, leaving behind the stalks.

Place the petals in a saucepan, cover with water and boil until the color drains away completely. You should be left with a deep crimson colored liquid.

Boil the petals to drain the color

Strain the liquid, and discard the remaining hibiscus petals.

Add caster sugar, lemon juice and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cool.

Pour your Fresh Hibiscus cordial into a bottle and store in the fridge or serve immediately with lemonade and ice. Or maybe use this as a base for a creative sunset cocktail.

Enjoy the amazing natural color you have created.

I look forward to making up many of your recipes when I have the opportunity! I also had hibiscus tea in Bali. I was so confused when it stayed black until lemon was added! c&c
