Delicious Lemon Cordial

It’s a bit hot out there today and this delicious lemon cordial really goes down a treat! I can’t take credit for being the maker (my husband makes it) but I’m really enjoying being the taster!


  • 1.5 kg sugar ( we only added 1.25 and it’s plenty sweet enough)
  • 1 tbs citric or tartaric acid
  • Zest & juice of 6 large or 8 medium lemons
  • 4 cups boiling water

Place sugar, citric or tartaric acid, lemon zest and boiling water in a large heatproof bowl. Stir until sugar dissolves, then add lemon juice. Leave to stand overnight or until cool, then strain through a fine sieve.

Poor into steralised bottles and seal. Makes approx 2 litres and can be used immeditely.

So good and so easy to make. Trust me this will go down a treat and you’ll be making a second batch before you know it!

The perfect summer cordial
