Hibiscus Sparkler

We don't drink a lot of soda in our household. But when we do, I usually make the syrup and add sparkling water. That's it! In this case, I decided to make a hibiscus simple syrup and drop a candied hibiscus in the bottom of the glass for a garnish.

And this syrup process is easily doubled or even tripled if you want to make more at one time. It keep in the fridge for awhile. I honestly am not sure how long as it never lasts long in my house.


  • 1 cup organic granulated sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 Tablespoon dried hibiscus petals


Place all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring the pan to a simmer. Swirl the pan until the sugar dissolves and you have a syrup with no sugar crystals visible. Remove from heat and let the hibiscus petals steep until the syrup is completely cooled.

Strain out the petals and store in a sterile jar in the fridge.
