Raspberry Cordial


Hello Dear Reader,


Blitz 500grams of Frozen Raspberries


Add sugar


Add juice of one Lemon, 500 grams Water and cook at 100 C for 30 minutes on speed 3, then blitz on speed 9 for 1 minute


Sieve Seeds


1 Litre of Raspberry Cordial


Decant to a glass bottle and keep in the fridge

This is super delicious and so easy, you just have to try it. I don't often look for a sweet cold drink, usually preferring just our cold filtered water when I am feeling the heat. This, however, tastes and feels like a treat, when mixed with mineral or soda water. It fizzes fantastically and is thirst quenching. Wow what a mouth full!

Ingredients

500 grams frozen Raspberries
500 grams sugar
500 grams water
Juice of one lemon

Method 
Place frozen Raspberries in the Thermomix bowl, grind on speed 10 for 1 minute, scraping down the bowl twice 
Add sugar, water and lemon juice 
Cook on 100 C for 30 minutes on speed 3 
After it has finished "cooking" gradually dial up the speed to 9 and blend for 1 minute 
It will be super hot, so let cool a little before sieving and decanting 
Pour cordial into a sieve placed over a glass jug 
Using a spatula, press cordial through sieve to remove fine seeds 
Decant into a glass bottle 

To serve, pour a small amount of cordial into a tall glass, add ice and cold Soda water, enjoy!

So, tell me, what is your favourite tipple on a super hot and humid day?
