Hi, I'm in Nigeria and the Sorrel drink is widely consumed here. Here it's called "zobo" or "sobo". We like to add other fruits to give it extra flavour, fruits like pineapple and cucumber but it depends on the individual. You should give it a try.

This Drink is very popular in Mexico... They call it "Agua De Jamaica" (Jamaican Water). It is my Mexican wife's favorite drink.
