Zoborado, (‘zobo’ if you prefer), also known by other names like ‘sobolo’, ‘hibiscus drink’ or ‘roselle drink‘, has evolved today to be more than just a favourite from childhood days. The growth of Africa’s culinary scene has seen the brightly coloured extract from the leaves being used in exciting ways in desserts, cuisines and of course, in mixology! Here’s one such wonderful recipe from top mixologist and founder, Elle’s Icebox.
