Jamaica with Orange

Jamaica is a popular drink in Mexico made from dried hibiscus flower. I gave the recipe my own twist and added fresh orange juice and it was absolutely delightful! If you are watching your waistline, try adding honey as a sweetener of choice instead of sugar. Cheers – Salud!

Jamaica Mexican Drink


3/4 cups dried hibiscus flower

12 cups water, separated

Juice of 4 oranges

sugar to taste


– In a large pot, add six cups of water and the hibiscus flower. Bring to a boil and simmer until the liquid is a vibrant red (approx. 15-20 minutes)

– Remove from heat and using a colander, separate the hibiscus flower and discard. Add the remaining liquid into a large pitcher. Add the other 6 cups of water, orange juice, and sweetener of choice. Stir.

– Serve over ice and enjoy.

Note: I recommend using fresh squeezed orange juice for this recipe.
