Refreshing Sorrel Drink

This drink is looked forward to every year during end of year celebrations all over the island.  It is deep red in color and very refreshing. It's an island tradition and one of my most favorite drinks. As a matter of fact, I've been known to freeze sorrel just so I can have the drink at other times of the year.

Cinnamon bark
Bay leaves

Put water, ginger, cinnamon and bay leaves in a pot and bring to a boil.  Add sorrel leaves and leave to steep for a few hours, preferably overnight.  The longer it steeps the stronger, richer and tastier the drink.  Squeeze the leaves and set aside. Sweeten the liquid to taste and refrigerate.  Enjoy when thirsty or when you have company over.

Next up, recipes using the sorrel leaves left over from making the sorrel drink.
