Ingredients 

  • 6 cups filtered water or more, to taste

Directions
 

  • In a large heavy saucepan, combine 4 cups water with the sugar and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

Recipe Testers’ Reviews

This strawberry punch is stunningly beautiful, full of flavor, and perfect for hot weather. We enjoyed making and serving this punch. Easy peasy. We decided not to add the additional 2 to 4 cups of water after steeping, but rather used the concentrate as a base and added sparkling water for one tester and topped with a bit of lime for another. A hit. We used the concentrate to make a few popsicles and we will do that again. And one tester added the base to a vodka mix for a cocktail and reported success! Be aware, the berry-hibiscus liquid will stain, so wear your apron.

    I was so anxious to try this so I used my frozen strawberries and Red Zinger tea. Red Zinger has the hibiscus flowers as the first ingredient so I went for it. Beautiful and YUM!

    1. Brilliant, Penny! I love your ingenuity. Thanks so much for taking the time to share this inspiration with others. I suspect there will be more of us giving your version a try…!
