A homegrown alternative to lemonade, this summery drink works just as well with frozen fruit as fresh.
- 600 g fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- soda water
- Combine raspberries with sugar and ½ cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Gently boil until slightly syrupy, about 20 min. Remove from heat and strain liquid into a jar. Cool completely, and then stir in lemon juice.
- To serve, pour ¼ cup cordial into a glass and top with ice and soda water to taste. Refrigerate syrup in a sealed jar for up to 1 week.
Don’t discard strained raspberries! Store in a sealed container in the fridge to serve on leftover potato rolls or scones.
