Last updated on November 23rd, 2022 at 05:54 pm

Hibiscus Flower Sangria or Mocktail is a very exotic and delicious drink. With Hibiscus being touted as the cure for all ills, being rich in antioxidants has become popular in recent times. This beautiful, colorful, vibrant red is a delight for all to feast their eyes on.

Do you love sangria? Then you will love this hibiscus flower sangria! This is a perfect beverage for parties and celebrations, just seeping while relaxing on the deck on the beautiful Sunday afternoon. It’s made with delicious fruits like apples, pears, and oranges.

Hibiscus is also known as Sorrel in Jamaica. Sorrel is also the name of an herb. So be careful when asking for sorrel at a Caribbean or West-Indian market.

The ingredients in the Hibiscus Flower Sangria

You will find many recipes with fresh hibiscus flowers. But this recipe is with dried hibiscus flowers. The recipe is also a mocktail. A mocktail is a mixed-iced non-alcoholic drink. It may contain soda water, sugar syrups, and fruit juices.

Here is the list of ingredients needed for the recipe:

  • Dried Hibiscus Flowers: you buy the dried flowers at your local supermarket or online at Noubess.com
  • Boiling water: tap water is fine; you don’t have to boil filtered water.
  • Cold water: filtered iced cold water might be a good idea.
  • Sugar or sweetener of choice.
  • Apple: red or green apple is fine. Whatever your preference.
  • Orange: I usually include small pieces of oranges as well as slices.
  • Pear: it does not matter if it is
  • Ice Cubes: filtered water might work best for you but is unnecessary.

This is an important step you cannot ignore when making sangria recipes.

Many Sangria recipes, mocktail recipes, and cocktail recipes contain fruits. These fruits must be washed well before chopping or slicing.

Some may say I am a bit paranoid about cleaning vegetables and fruits. There is nothing about paranoia when dealing with fruits and vegetables. They must all be washed and cleaned the proper way.

I always leave a bottle of vinegar on my counter for these moments. I spray the fruits very well, give them a quick scrub and rinse them very well under running water.

How to make the Hibiscus Flower Sangria

  • Wash all the fruits and set them aside.
  • Prepare the tea. In a medium to a large pot, add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  • Place the dried hibiscus flowers in a bowl and rinse quickly. Drain and add to boiling water. Boil for about 3 – 5 minutes and turn off the fire under the pot. Add the cold water and cover. Let the liquid cool or steep for at least 20 minutes.
  • Drain the hibiscus tea, and fill up a pitcher. Refrigerate the tea until thoroughly chilled. This may take two or more hours, depending on the temperature of your refrigerator.
  • While the tea is chilling in the refrigerator, chop and slice all the fruits.
  • Remove the pitcher from the refrigerator. Add the fruits and return the pitcher to the fridge for 15 minutes at least—just enough time for the fruits to get colder.
  • Serve in glasses over ice. Add more chopped fruits if desired.
