Strawberry Cordial

For me, summer is all about berries.    And with the short summers here in Glasgow, I’ve been looking for a way to make it last.    This is it.   Added to which, this is a great way to use up overripe strawberries.

Strawberry Cordial:

  • 1 part sugar
  • 3 parts strawberries (thanks Alec!)
  • (optional) 1 part vodka.

Put all the ingredients in a jar and mash up.     Put it in the fridge for 2-3 days.  Strain and pour into a bottle.

This is gorgeous added to ginger beer with a squeeze of lemon juice.
