🌺SORREL 🌺

🎄🎅Season’s greetings everyone!!🎄🎅 We’re 22 days away from Christmas and since I’m in the spirit, I thought I’d whip up a batch of sorrel! Sorrel (Hibiscus) is a popular drink in Caribbean homes throughout the Christmas season.

I recently received my December Callaloobox and it was full of goodies! Sorrel, lime pepper sauce, hot chow, mixed essence, black cake and split peas *which isn’t in the picture because I have no self-control and I ate it right away 😂😂*. Check out Callaloobox to get these products I’ve used in this recipe and a whole lot more! The boxes would make great presents for those who love Caribbean food or those who are ready to spice up their kitchens 😊. Callaloobox is a new U.S. based subscription box service featuring seasonings, marinades and hot sauces from the Caribbean. Each box contains different products considered to be cornerstones of Caribbean cooking. When you receive the box, you’ll find an info sheet describing the main ingredients in each product along with some uses and helpful hints! Check them out here

I made a quick video showing how easy it is to make this delicious drink!
