Heidi's Baking Fun Challenge - Lemon Cordial

Sorry I haven't posted sooner, but we have been very busy packing to move! Even though this week has been rather busy, I still had time to make something to enter into ‘Heidi’s Baking Fun Challenge’ which is ‘Smoothies and Cold Drinks’ this fortnight and I made Lemon Cordial!

It is very easy and quick to make.
All you need is:

1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup of sugar

Put both ingredients into a small saucepan and stir over a medium heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved.  Pour the syrup into a jug/bowl and leave to cool for about 5 minutes.  Then pour it into a glass bottle.  Cut a slice of lemon in half and pop it into the bottle of cordial.  Pour a little into a glass and top up with cold water and ice.

Love Nancy
