Sorrel

Sorrel

This drink is made with Roselle flowers. It is best served chilled, with ice and you can even add a little bit of rum to spike it. In Trinidad, it became a Christmas drink by default, because it is at that time of year that we harvest the pods from the plant.

  • 50g of Sorrel flowers
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of cassia chunks or cinnamon chunks
