    1. Bring water, sugar, hibiscus, brown sugar, ginger and lemon zest to the boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until sugars dissolve and flowers soften, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and steep syrup until flavours combine, about 5 minutes.
    2. Strain syrup into a container through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing solids with a spoon to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard solids.
