Strawberry-Hibiscus Punch

(Makes 6–8 cups)

  • 6–8 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dried hibiscus (Jamaica) flowers
  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced (2 cups), plus more for garnish
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • Ice cubes

In large heavy saucepan, combine 4 cups of filtered water with sugar and bring to simmer over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove pan from heat and add hibiscus flowers, strawberries, and ginger. (Be sure to pause and take note of how beautiful the mixture looks.) Steep for about 2 hours.

Strain liquid into bowl and stir in 2 to 4 cups of filtered water, depending on your taste. Transfer punch to pitcher. Serve over ice and garnish with more strawberries.

Make it ahead: The punch can be made up to 5 days ahead, covered, and refrigerated.
