- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup dried hibiscus flowers
- ¾ cup wild blueberries fresh or frozen
- 4 cups filtered water
- 1 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add dried hibiscus flowers and blueberries to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to gently press unpeopled blueberries to release their juices.
Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer into a measuring cup or pitcher and cool.
Once cool, combine the syrup with filtered water and lemon juice and stir well. Refrigerate until cold. Serve over ice.
