  • This recipe calls for dried hibiscus, but you can make this sorrel punch with fresh hibiscus too. Just note that the punch will be lighter in color.
  • This is such a great make-ahead solution! Prep the hibiscus punch a day (or two) in advance and store in the fridge until needed.
  • Easily create a kid-friendly version of sorrel punch by omitting the rum.
