How to Make Sorrel drink

- In a steel container, place the sorrel, ginger, cloves and orange peel.
- Pour 10 cups of boiling water and cover. Heat the stainless steel until the water just begins to boil.
- Leave the container for 24 hours to allow the essential oils to properly blend in together.
- Now strain with a fine sieve to separate the juice from fine particulate matter.
- Add sugar, red wine and rum. Heat and stir occasionally for about 2 minutes.
- Pour the juice into bottles.
- Place a few grains of rice into each bottle.
- Set aside the mixture for about one day to properly blend all the ingredients.
- The juice is best served chilled.
