Rose geranium and lemon cordial recipe


This is one of the best early autumn drinks – when scented-leaved pelargoniums are at their most prolific. Unusual but delicious ingredients create a flavoursome drink. The recipe makes 2 litres.

Ingredients

2kg caster sugar

1 litre water

Handful of rose scented geranium leaves

Juice 6 – 8 lemons (depending on whether tartaric acid is used)

Finely grated zest of 2 lemons

30g citric (or tartaric) acid (Optional)

 

Method

Heat the sugar, water and geranium leaves until the sugar is dissolved. Cool. Remove the geranium leaves and add the citric acid (if using), juice and zest.

Dilute to taste with sparkling water.
