Introduction: Raspberry Hibiscus Cooler Mix

Disclaimer: This is a recipe of my own creation, I am by no means a cook, just a teenager who randomly created this based on Agua de Jamaica after school on a 103 degree summer day and enjoyed it enough to keep making it. My recipe also only makes a small amount because for me it is a special treat(like the end of finals).

Step 1: Ingredients

1/4 oz dried hibiscus

3/2 cups water

3 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup frozen raspberries

1 tablespoon lime juice

Step 2: Making the Base

Put the dried hibiscus and water in a pot, bring it to a boil, then turn it low and let it sit for 10 minutes. Add frozen raspberries, lime juice, and sugar. Crush the raspberries a bit while you stir. Boil for 5 minutes then remove from heat.

Step 3: Strain and Store

Let pot sit and cool. When cool strain into a jar. (I don't know how long it lasts, I normally finish it in about a week and nothing's happened before I'm done)

Step 4: To Enjoy

Mix about 2 tablespoons of the syrup in 6 ounces of water. (I add frozen raspberries as ice cubes) Stir and Enjoy!
