Shopping Cart


Posted by Eleanor Ozich on

To me, homemade cordials are a fabulous opportunity to create something vibrant, zippy and refreshing to drink.  More often than not, we settle for the sugar-filled options from the supermarket, but why would you when you can make your very own prettier, fruit-filled versions! 


2 cups coconut sugar 
2 cups water 
2 cups blackberries, fresh or frozen 
11/2 cups lime juice 
3 thumbs of ginger, finely sliced 


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a soft boil, and then simmer over low heat until reduced by half, about 20–25 minutes. Allow to cool, pour through a fine sieve, and transfer to a sterilised glass bottle. 

To serve, pour 30-40ml in a glass, depending on the size,  and then top with sparkling or still water, 2-3 ice cubes,  slices of lime and a sprig of thyme.

Makes 2 cups, about 12 serves.
