Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat in a small Pot. Turn off heat, add the Hibiscus Flowers and steep for 5 minutes. Strain out the hibiscus flowers. Return the pot to the stove and add the Sugar. Heat on medium until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using.

Notes
Traditionally, palomas are made with Squirt or other grapefruit flavored sodas. Because of the inclusion of homemade simple syrup, which is very sweet, we went with fresh juices and soda water to make sure the drink was not overly sweet.
