I grew up drinking Bissap - a cold and refreshing drink made with dried hibiscus, mint and vanilla sugar.
So when my friend Camille Vidal who also has great memories of Senegal offered me to create a cocktail with some dried hibiscus I had left at home - I said yes!
Camille is one of the leading voices in the drink industry - she has spent her career working as a consultant and global brand ambassador.
For the past 2 years, she has been focused on La Maison Wellness encouraging people to drink more mindfully, appearing regularly on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch and have I mentioned that she is also a yoga teacher?
Now, let's go back to the cocktail...
Here's the very tasty Paris Dakar, a non-alcoholic cocktail packed with flavours - hibiscus tea, maple syrup, pineapple, orange blossom, cinnamon… a real treat!
