LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 21, 2018) – Summertime means time for gathering with friends and family to enjoy a backyard get together and serve up a refreshing drink. There’s no better way to enjoy the long hot days and nights than to settle down with a cool glass of lemonade. Something about lemonade celebrates friendship and warm summer days. This summer, while entertaining your guests, stir up tradition and get inspired by adding a colorful, delicious twist to your favorite drink. Flavorman, the world-wide leader in beverage innovation and development, took the classic drink, and livened them up with a splash of fruit, tangy mixes and herbal delights. These are a new range of irresistible summer drinks, all carefully curated by the Flavorman team. From backyard BBQs to book club, these refreshing twists on the summer staple will serve you well! If you are looking to mix it up, there is an adult beverage alternative that will provide an extra kick.

¼ cup dried culinary Hibiscus flowers
1 cinnamon stick
¾-1 cup sugar
Add water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat; add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add all other ingredients and cover and let sit for 30 minutes. Strain into a pitcher and discard the hibiscus flowers and cinnamon stick. Chill.
2-3 cups water (sparkling, if you want some bubbles)
