African Hibiscus Punch

Hibiscus has a pleasantly tart and sour taste with a raspberry, rhubarb, and plum character and a floral, berrylike aroma. Because of its vibrant red color, it livens up refreshing teas and other cooling drinks.

Jus de vissap, a cold hibiscus drink often called the national drink of Senegal, is also popular in neighboring parts of West Africa.
