Hibiscus Lemonade (Easy Recipe!)

When I first started to experiment with using hibiscus in food and drink recipes, I didn’t know what to expect. A great example of what I mean by that is this easy recipe for making a sweet and tangy hibiscus lemonade. The floral notes of the hibiscus pair well with the lemon juice without overpowering the drink–a must-try for those who are new to experimenting with hibiscus.

  1. The recipe calls for 4 cups of water, but the recipe only seems to use two (to boil/steep dried hibiscus in) Where’d the other two cups go? I’m assuming the remaining two cups goes in with the lemon juice and honey🤷‍♀️???
