Instructions
  1. Combine water and sugar in a pot and heat slowly over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves.
  2. Add ginger & hibiscus.
  3. Reduce heat to a low simmer and steep buds for 30 minutes.
  4. After steeping flowers & ginger, remove from heat.
  5. Pour contents through a fine mesh sieve and into a large mason jar.
  6. Let syrup cool until you can handle the jar without melting the flesh off your hands (or if you’re impatient like me, wrap a thick kitchen cloth around the jar).
  7. Line sieve with a coffee filter, place sieve over second jar, and filter syrup.
  8. The coffee filter removes fine particulate matter and will result in a clear and debris-free syrup.
Recipe Notes

Hibiscus is a vibrant flower that results in a rich, deep cherry-colored syrup, so no supplemental food coloring is required.
