*To make the hibiscus simple syrup: bring half of a small pot of water to boil. Had about 1/4 a pot full of white sugar. After the sugar has dissolved turn off the burner. Fill a coffee filter to 4 tablespoons of hibiscus loose leaf tea. Tie the bag with rubber band. Unless you have a tea bags then use about 5 of them. Use a fork, hook this to the rubber band and dangle it over the pot. Balance it on the edge of the pot. Leave for 30 minutes. Let cool. Transfer to some large mason jars.
