Roselle juice also called Bissap juice is a well known drink in Africa, especially in West Africa. From Senegal to Guinea Bissap is sold on every busy street. However, this drink is not only popular in Africa, because I’ve found out that many Asian countries too love this hibiscus flower drink.

5. Pour the juice through a strainer into another container.
