Growing up, Sorrel was always present during the Christmas holiday. I would see either fresh or dried petals on the kitchen table and knew immediately what that meant; time to make Sorrel and Christmas as was around the corner.

What is Sorrel?

Sorrel, is what many people know as Hibiscus blossoms. They can be prepared from both fresh and dried petals, that are steeped in water infused with root ginger, cinnamon leaves, orange peel and aromatic spices like cinnamon, allspice berries, and ginger for an extended period of time to draw out the flavour. It has a gorgeous ruby color with a tangy tart flavour, similar to cranberry or pomegranate.

What is Jamaican Sorrel Made Of?

Jamaica Sorrel is made from steeped Hibiscus petals. It is then mixed with a variety of other ingredients most commonly Appleton Estate Rum or Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum to create a boastful Christmas holiday drink.
