Jamaican sorrel drink, also known as sorrel juice or simply sorrel, is a popular beverage in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries. It is made from the calyces, or petals, of the hibiscus sabdariffa plant, which is commonly referred to as sorrel. The calyces are steeped in water and then sweetened with sugar or other sweeteners. Additional ingredients such as spices, ginger, and rum may also be added for flavor. The resulting drink is typically deep red in color and has a tangy, fruity flavor with floral undertones. It is often served chilled and enjoyed during festive occasions like Christmas and New Year's. Jamaican sorrel drink is not only refreshing but also known for its potential health benefits, as hibiscus is rich in antioxidants and may have properties that support cardiovascular health.
