Make a batch of one of our cordial for summer sipping, from fruity blackcurrant to refreshing cucumber and lime
Learning how to make cordials couldn’t be easier, with minimal ingredients and time needed. We love making the most of gluts of spring and summer produce by turning them into vibrant syrups for drinks.
These summery fruit cordials are delicious with tonic or sparkling water, or try using them in cocktails – we’d suggest using the cucumber and lime in a margarita, while the quick ginger cordial is delicious with lemonade or whisky.
