Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Hibiscus tea and lemons are both super tart. As a gal that likes a lot of pucker, I like to add a modest amount of the syrup. If you’re a fan of sweet lemonades and tea, go ahead and make more of the syrup or simply add sugar to taste.
  • You can use any red berry you like, even pitted cherries! I used easy to find, fresh strawberries and raspberries—though unsweetened, frozen berries would work just as well in this recipe.
