Lemon Cordial.

If life (or in my case, the mother-in-law) gives you lemons.................make cordial!

1 1/2 cups lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp lemon zest
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan & bring to the boil, stirring. Simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool. Strain the cordial & pour into a bottle. Refrigerate. Before serving dilute with water & ice.



  1. oh Malea, I can smell and taste those beautiful lemons just from your photo! they look so yummy♥

  2. I made lemon bar slice last night with my lemons. It was yummo and the tennis ladies loved it. The kids have been begging me to make the cordial again this year.

  3. Yum, I love lemon cordial, I often have it with mineral water at night while making dinner. Will have to try this one as the commercial ones can be a little sickly.


Thanks for dropping by my blog, your comments make me smile :-)
