This is a deliciously refreshing drink and so simple. The recipe was obtained from two French chefs who once operated a unique and distinct restaurant in Victoria. Other fruits may be used instead of lemons but less sugar would be required. Orange cordial for example would only need 1 cup of raw sugar.
You will need:
1 ½ cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ½ cups of raw sugar
1 cup of water
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil stirring. Allow to cool and then stir in the lemon juice. Bottle and use the same way as other cordial. (Pour a small amount in a glass and add cold water to suit taste). It will keep in the refrigerator for approximately a week.
