Herbert’s hot recipe book: Ginger & Hibiscus

Zuzana Fajta • 14. December 2016

Ginger and hibiscus is a typical winter combination that warms everyone up. One of our first syrups has distinctive taste, colour and is perfect for long winter evenings.

This pick-me-up, which speeds up your metabolism was created by mixing fresh ginger, dried hibiscus flowers, cinnamon and Moroccan mint. Refreshes in summer, warms you up in winter in its hot version. But if you do not want to stick to classic lemonade, check out our recipe book. Inside, you can find inspiration for preparing several mixed drinks.


Preparation is very easy and fast. All recipes are mixed in the same dilution ratio as cold lemonades (1:10). We recommend using 80°C water for the preparation of hot drinks to avoid getting burned. Do not hesitate to use fresh herbs, slices of fresh or dried fruit to make the drink according to your possibilities and taste.

Finally, put all ingredients into the glass, pour hot water, stir, garnish and the delicacy is ready.


We have prepared some alcoholic and non-alcoholic recipes for you. Try them!
