There’s nothing like a cold glass of Sorrel after a long day at Carnival to help you feel refreshed!
Made with hibiscus flowers and flavoured with bay leaves and cassia, Sorrel is a favourite in many Caribbean countries. In Trinidad in particular, the drink is made in large batches so that it can be shared amongst friends and family... add a splash of rum for a special Carnival kick!
- 75g sugar
- Ice cubes and sliced lime to serve
