Hibiscus Lemonade Recipe / Sembaruthi Lemonade with Sabja Seeds

Feel that lemon juice is too boring and want to prepare something colorful?
Hibiscus lemonade is a great choice which was suggested by my friend Sushma. I used to have hibiscus based milk during my childhood. My father used to bring hibiscus flower and my mother used to create hibiscus milk (Recipe HERE) as alternative to branded milk drinks.
