About this recipe:This an awesome drink to make for a hot day. Make a lot and you can please a whole crowd or store it in your refrigerator to drink at your leisure. I prefer the drink on the not so sweet side - just add more sugar if you prefer it more sweet. To store, strain into a glass jar and keep in your refrigerator.
Put the water and sugar in a large stainless steel or glass pot and heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the hibiscus flowers and turn off the heat and let the flowers steep and cool for 4 hours or overnight. Taste the drink and adjust the sweetness with more sugar if you prefer.
Fill glass mugs with crushed ice and pour in the drink. Add a straw and a couple hibiscus flowers for garnish.
