There’s nothing as refreshing as a cool glass of Homemade Lemonade on a hot summer’s day. With summer showing no signs of waning, having a batch of Lemonade Cordial at hand means you can whip up a tray of cool drinks in a flash.
This recipe was passed on to me by my friend Dani Venn a few summers ago, you can make it up with plain or sparkling water. Freeze the diluted mixture in icy-pole moulds to make a cool treat for the kids.
The lemon syrup also tastes fantastic in cocktails and mixed drinks, just add a shot of vodka and soda and you’ve got yourself a ‘hard lemonade’.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
