What Makes A Vincentian Christmas Special: Sorrel…
… a cold glass of sorrel! You know it’s November when on almost every street corner in Kingstown you hear the words ” Two bags, five dollars for the sorrel here” .
This delicious concoction has become a quintessential part of Christmas here in Vincy, but can be enjoyed all year round especially since dried sorrel is becoming an easily sourced commodity.
The drink is a wonderful blend of sweet and tart with hints of spice that delights your taste buds and leaves you wanting more. No wonder it’s often the drink of choice to accompany Christmas day lunch or a slice of fruit cake.
Here’s my family recipe below. I hope it makes your season merry and bright. Feel free to share it with a friend!
