One of the most popular cordial flavours is undoubtedly elderflower, sometimes with various tasty additions. We recommend elderflower, lemon & vanilla added to a glass of sparkling water for the perfect summer cooler. Rosehips also preserve well, and mixed with hot water and honey, make a great pick-me-up.
Whatever your summer bounty, you can turn it into a sticky, sweet cordial. Gooseberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants and blackberries all work beautifully.
Recipes for your cordial
The culinary uses are many and varied, and in my experience, never less than delicious. Elderflower cordial is probably the best known, since it is made commercially and is available year-round. It’s also easy to make yourself at home – check out the recipe by Georgina Hayden below.
I’d also recommend elderflower fritters. Try making this super easy tempura batter lemon sorbet and add four tablespoons of elderflower cordial for a refreshing twist. Elderflower and gooseberries make a wonderful pairing of flavours and this is an excellent choice to layer on a piece of toast or hand out as edible gifts.
My own particular favourite is elderflower champagne. For a very modest outlay – a fermenting bin and pressure barrel – plus a mere tenner’s worth of ingredients, you can make 40 pints of very palatable beer-strength sparkling booze in only a week.
Put the sugar in a bucket or basin with the boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add the citric acid or lemon juice and the lemon zest.
Shake the elderflowers to remove any insects and add the flowers to the sugar syrup. Cover and leave to stand for 1-days, stirring morning and night.
Strain the elderflower cordial through muslin and decant into sterilised bottles. It’s now ready to use.
Reviewed weeks ago “Best hotel, Cordial staff”
Corinthians Boutique hotel is a well maintained hotel. Appearance from inside and outside was very nice. Staffs are very courteous and provided quick room service. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Would love to stay here again.
Ours is a real family affair
Cordial, and the business of making it, is much talked about throughout the daily routine and chaos of our six-member family. Our year old loves counting up our takings from our markets, and our eldest daughter, an enthusiastic baker, likes the production, and marketing side. We’ve really enjoyed learning about the bounty of nature (especially as we live in the middle of it, in rural Devon) and being part of a process that takes a physical piece of sun-ripened fruit to our smooth, delicious cordial. It’s a lot of work but rewarding really.
One of the perks of our family business is that our table is never devoid of a delicious Rosehip, or Elderberry, or Sour Cherry addition to water (it’s also never devoid of squabbling but that’s another topic of conversation altogether). If you’d like your family to drink more water, pop round to our shop (on this site) and pick up a couple of bottles. We’ll even deliver them to you (postage included in the price!!!!) They’re so versatile and make great gifts too. We hope you and your friends (and family) enjoy our cordial as much as we enjoy making it! get in touch!
Using two stemless wine glasses, pour 1.oz of vodka into each. Using a glass juicer or using your hands, squeeze juice from each grapefruit then pour evenly into each glass. Add tsp. of elderflower cordial into each glass, along with a handful of ice cubes. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a sprig of thyme.
Start collecting bottles with clip top lids like Kilner jars. A batch of these makes life easier, because the danger with cordials is that they can possibly explode and having a bottle with a strong lid is a great comfort. If you can’t get any, just use any smallish glass bottles with lids, or even jars – but be more conscientious with your sterilising.
You’ll need a nice big saucepan, ideally a heavy preserving pan or cast iron cauldron, the larger the better to allow stirring space. Don’t be put off if you haven’t got the perfect thing. Any large saucepan will do.
You’ll also need a wooden spoon for stirring, a muslin square for straining, a measuring jug (which doubles up for pouring cordial into bottles) and a thick tea-towel or oven glove for handling hot bottles.
Also useful are a bottle brush, a big clean bowl or bucket for washing the fruit, a baking tray or flat dish to stand the bottles on while filling (so you can save and drink any spillages) and labels for the end product. A clean plastic bucket and a sieve are required for the elderflower.
The general principle is to boil the fruit down with a relatively small amount of water, to produce a clear fruit liquid. The sweetener is not added until later, which stops it turning into jam and saves sugar, as the pulp is discarded. Pick the fruit or flowers, wash and pick over as required, put them in your big pan, add the requisite water, cover with a lid and simmer. How much liquid is produced will depend upon the type of fruit used, its stage of ripeness and level of rain prior to picking.
The procedure can be split over two days to allow fruit-pulp to strain or flowers to steep. You can even prepare the fruit liquid when you’ve got a glut, then freeze it and make the cordial another time. This also allows you to buy sugar or honey after you know how much liquid you have produced, and to procure sufficient bottles.
East India Company
The East India Company is well known for their use of fresh ingredients to make authentic Indian products, and their cordials are no different.
Using delicious fresh flowers, such as orange blossom and violet, their cordials range from intensely sweet to headily perfumed.
Rocks ethos is simple: fresh ingredients pressed amongst the lush green fields of Devon, packed into bottles with a little sugar and none of the nasty stuff.
Their spiced fruit punch has a soft mulled wine flavour that would go wonderfully with a dash of whiskey and some fizzing soda water.
Belvoir have been making handmade cordials since the seventies, so we think it’s fair to say they know what they’re doing.
Originally pressing elderflowers grown on their farm their range has grown exponentially, ranging from lime and lemongrass to seasonal bottles like spiced winterberry.
100% not from concentrate, Pixley Berries delivers big flavours in every glass.
We particularly enjoyed their cranberry and apple bottle, as it had a lovely tang from the cranberries that separates Pixley from the cordial curse of being too sweet.
With a lovely bohemian feel inspired by their base in the Cotswolds, Five valleys creates delicious cordials with a casual attitude.
We loved the tropical flavour of their coconut and kaffir lime cordial, full of sweet flavours calling out for some rum!
Place the plums, cinnamon quills, cardamon pods, honey and boiling water in a pot on low-medium heat. Add more water if needed to have roughly 2cm deep water in the pot.
Bring to simmering point and cover. Leave to cook for 40-50 minutes or until the plums have completely broken down. Taste, and add honey if needed.
Allow the plums to cool then in batches pour through a sieve and stir with a wooden spoon to remove the plum seeds, cinnamon quills and cardamon pods as well as plum skins.
Store the cordial in the fridge. When ready to serve, dilute with chilled water to taste. (You’ll Also Love: Golden Turmeric Latte)

Tincture corner of my herb shelf!
My cabinets are full of jars, and those jars are full of strange floating bits in colored liquid. It makes me feel my most witchy to open that cabinet and bring out strange brews to share with friends. I have many jars that are medicine, and jars that are for fun, and jars that are a bit of both.
Lemon Balm, Sweet Melissa, fills out the next jar with her flat, wide leaves. I crushed them with my fingers as I put them in the jar, to release her lemony, sharp oils. This plant is excellent for anxiety, depression, any emotional rollercoasters and overwhelming dizziness can be slowed down by a couple drops in water and a couple of deep breaths.

The merchant that sells them is in Crows Perch in Velen. The top merchant on Crows Perch near the armorer also sells it.
The merchants only have bottles of each when you open his stock. However you can immediately replenish them by simply exiting the merchant conversation and talking to the merchant again.
Update: Seems you only need to close the merchant inventory stock and talk to him again to replenish the the items (no need to exit the conversation).
Update: Recent updates made the closing and opening of the merchant inventory page not refresh their stock anymore. On some merchants (like in Harviken Skellige), you can medidate outside the pub to refresh the merchants inventory. Sometimes, saving and loading your instance also refreshes their inventory.
Harviken is South East of the map.
