Above: Sarah takes a handful of hibiscus flowers, puts them in a jug with water and leaves them to soak in the sun for several hours.
Above: Hibiscus flowers can be easily found at any Mexican supermarket in the produce section, but for an online source Amazon offers Dried Hibiscus Flowers for $14.25 for a two-pound bag.
Above: Add the juice of two limes and a little sugar or honey to taste.
Above: Sarah likes the look of the flowers steeped in water and use a tea strainer for pouring. But if you wish to avoid straining, you can soak the flowers in a Drawstring Musln Bag: $4.45 for a pack of 25 from Amazon.
