Hibiscus Juice

We make many wonderful and healthy juices using fruits or either with veggies, eventhough we make rarely juices using flowers, i got an opportunity to get some precious fresh hibiscus flowers from my friend's house when we went last week to a small village quite far away from Paris..Back home, i cleaned and freezed those flowers for further uses, yesterday i prepared this beautiful looking juice using those frozen hibiscus flowers..You can very well make tea or sharbat using these flowers..Its tends to reduce the body heat also they have loads of medicinal value..Serve this juice chilled, you will definitely enjoy it when its terribly hot outside..

Hibiscus Juice

5nos Hibiscus flower(fresh or frozen)
1/2cup Sugar
2cups Water
1/4cup Lemon juice
1/4tsp Salt
Ice cubes

Bring boil the water along with hibiscus flower and put off the stove,keep aside for an hour...Strain the water, add the sugar, lemon juice, salt and add enough chilled water, ice cubes and enjoy..

  8. Looks so lovely Priya. I have tasted this back home, but always got a feeling of drinking a medicine than a juice. Your clicks make me change my opinion. Awesome.

  26. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a cookshow on TV. The chef was from Mexico and she prepared a veggie salad and had added these flowers. I was surprised to see it and now here we go. I see this colorful juice at your space.
    Do you notice the flavor of those flowers when used in cooking?
