Cardamom Hibiscus Sharbat

Keep cool with our take on an icy Persian treat: Sharbat. Start by infusing water with sugar, honey, Cardamom, Cinnamon and hibiscus flowers. Once strained and cooled, this fragrant syrup is combined with club soda over ice for a fizzy, sweet and tart drink that’s as refreshing as it is beautiful.
