Even though I’m a straight up Yankee, I love me some sorrel! What is sorrel?  If you’re familiar with hibiscus tea, it’s similar to it, especially in color. Sorrel is made from the sepals of the sorrel flower (Hibiscus sabdariffa).  I’ve honestly never made it.  I get my sorrel from the mother of my sister’s boyfriend. Whenever she sends over sorrel, it’s usually a lot.  After a while, I get a little bored with drinking the same thing.  One Sunday morning, I decided to mix it up a bit.

At home, this day of my experiment, coincidentally we had champagne, and orange juice.  Instead of making the same old boring brunch mimosa, I decided to add some sorrel.  It was so good!  The sorrel isn’t overpowering. 

I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of it.  The next time I make it I will add a picture to this post. Here is how it is made:
