Spiced Sorrel Sangria

Spiced Sorrel Sangria

Holiday season is my favorite time of the year for many reasons but, the drink take the cake. Yes, even over food. I love coming up with new drinks for us to enjoy. This sorrel recipe was born when I visited a Senegalese restaurant here in Atlanta a few weeks ago.  They had this sorrel drink that I fell in love with and so I created my own with a twist and a few splashes of rum lol. You can always just add sparkling water and serve this beverage as a mock-tail. I have also attached the youtube tutorial of me making this step by step I hope that helps as well. Bottoms up and enjoy!
