The Christmas Drink you can have anytime...sorrel
l lb. Sugar
1 gal. Water
¼ lb. Ginger Root (Chopped)
Put all the ingredients in a large plastic bowl, large enough to hold 2 gallons of water.
In a large pot, bring water to a boil, and then pour water into container with all the
ingredients. Steep for about 4 hours.
Strain the drink into another large container, discard the remains.
Let the solution cool to room to temperature, and then sweeten to taste with sugar.
When the ingredients have cooled enough, put the container in the refrigerator to cool overnight.
Serve this drink with ice in 8oz. glasses.
You may add a little Jamaican White Rum or Red Label Wine to enhance the flavor.
I do not recommend using rum if you are going to serve this drink to children. Instead, add a
little lemon juice to twist this delicious drink. Nuff said.
