Triple Lemon Cordial

I'm hosting Weekend Herb Blogging this week and I've made something refreshing for the warmer weather. I do enjoy making cordials and this triple lemon cordial is a blend of lemon, lemongrass and lemon verbena.

Triple Lemon Cordial
Cook time: 10 minutes

1 cup lemon juice, pulp included
1 lemongrass stalk, crushed
lemon verbena leaves
1 cup water
1 cup raw sugar

Place the water, lemon juice and pulp, lemongrass and sugar into a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 10 minutes or until it is reduced by about a third.

Stir in the lemon verbena leaves and remove from the heat. Cool in the pan before straining into a bottle. Store in the fridge.

Use a traditional cordial with still or sparkling water or as a mixer in cocktails.

  1. I love cordials!
    I will have to wait until spring and my Lippia citrodora will have new fresh leaves, but then I will try it.
    The bottle looks like one I saw at Ikea, is that possible?
