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!
