1 pack of dried sorrel
3 cups (24 ounces) water
2 small limes (about 4 tablespoons lime juice), plus lime rounds for garnish
Honey Simple Syrup (2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons honey).
Ice, for serving
To prepare the tea component, heat the water to a low simmer, either in a teapot or in a saucepan on the stovetop. Steep the dried sorrel in the hot water for 20 minutes and strain. Set the sorrel aside to cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes.
To make the honey syrup: Combine equal parts of honey and water (say, 2 tablespoons each if you’re only making one batch of drinks) in a microwave-safe bowl or small saucepan. Warm in the microwave or over the stovetop just until you can completely stir the honey into the water. Set aside.
When you’re ready to serve, fill four medium glasses with ice. Fill each halfway with the sorrel. Top each with about a tablespoon of lime juice and 1 teaspoon of the honey simple syrup, and stir to combine. Fill the rest of each glass with sparkling water, gently stirring afterward to combine. You may want to adjust to taste by using less lime juice or more simple syrup—totally up to you! Serve promptly.
