A taste of my childhood. 👧🏽
a recipe from me to you 🥰
“sorrell” is the guyanese or caribbean term for hibiscus. a spiced drink that usually turns up during holiday season in the caribbean. however, my mother simply used to make this any day just like we would make lemonade. i actually had no idea it was something special to guyana until i had gotten older. 😅
this drink can obviously be made to your preference, adding or subtracting anything from the list 👍🏽
