Which leads to why I started Lindo Sorrel. After, I had my middle son Jacob I would visit my local Jamaican Restaurant (The Original Coley's) and have an iced cup Sorrel. Until one day my favorite restaurant owner temporarly closed his restaurant. Thereafter, I began making the drink to satisfy my craving of the tart, cranberry like flavor drink. My mother in law encouraged me to continue to make the drink and to bottle up the drink and sell it. My pop's Leland invested in my storage space and I was on a roll after that.
Once I became familiar with majestic and magical benefits of Hibiscus, I wanted to share with my close family and friends. I consulted with my carribean family and friends on how to make a perfect batch and adding my own twist to the drink. I began bottling up my drink in mason jars and selling this healthy refreshing drink to my dance and and yoga classmates.
