The hibiscus bushes bloom abundantly in Indonesia and the hibiscus lemonade is a wonderfully delicious and cooling drink. Try it out and tell us what you think in the comment section below.


  • 10 hibiscus flowers, stamens removed
  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of raw honey (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 8 cups of water


  • Heat 4 cups of water till it comes to a rolling boil.
  • Add flowers and steep for 5-10 mins.
  • Strain flowers
  • Add honey stir till dissolved
  • Pour into a large jar and add the lemon juice and the rest of the water.
  • Refrigerate and serve cold with ice.

The moment you add lemon juice, there is a miracle, the dark brown almost black hibiscus infused sugar solution transforms into the most gorgeous pink.

This is the concentrate. Dilute with cold water and ice to serve.
