A Sorrel is a Caribbean drink made from Roselle, not from the spinachy sorrel leaves as I first thought… =) For many people this is a Christmas drink, but if you ask me you can drink it whenever you fancy a drink with a zing.


  • 4 packs of dried or freshly picked sorrel
  • 4 chunks of fresh ginger
  • a bottle of pimentos
  • 2lb bag of sugar
  • a large pot of water


  1. Boil water with sorrel and small pieces of ginger – mix occasionally – until water turns red.
  2. Take pot off cooker, cover it and allow to brew over night.
  3. Using a strainer, pour liquid into pitcher or bottle making sure no sediments are let through.
  4. Sweeten to taste with sugar and add pimentos for spice.
  5. Drink hot as tea or chilled in a glass.
