Kindred Spirit Raspberry Cordial Recipe

Having recently binge-watched Netflix's Anne with an E here at the office, we're going through some serious withdrawals (although I have to admit, our vocabulary has improved dramatically).

We need just a few more weeks until we can revisit the series again, so what better way to pass the time than to mix up some raspberry cordial and share it with a kindred spirit? It's a super easy recipe, which is the best kind.

Ingredients:

  • 20 ounces of fresh raspberries (or frozen, thawed)
  • 3 lemons, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 6 cups of water

Directions:

  • Place the raspberries in a large metal bowl or pot.
  • Squeeze the juice from two of the lemons over the berries.
  • In a separate pot, boil the water and add the sugar, mixing thoroughly until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Pour the water/sugar mix, while still hot, over the raspberry/lemon juice mix.
  • Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature, then cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge.
  • After 24 hours in the fridge, strain the mixture into a small glass or plastic pitcher for storage, and keep it refrigerated. If desired, smash some of the berries and add them to the strained cordial for added flavor and texture.
  • Serve chilled or over ice with a slice of lemon on top.
