I know I know I have been neglecting this blog terribly.
The problem is I don’t measure things when I cook so it is really hard to write a concrete recipe. Will have to get some new measuring cups and make sure I do it properly. That and the fact time seems to vanish.
Anyway I have been thinking a lot about how many additives and things are in our food and drink.
I am seriously contemplating learning to make my own ginger syrup/cordial as I have fallen in love with this simple easy and delish drink.
It is so simple to create
Crush a couple of handfulls of frozen raspberries in a container with a fork or spoon
Pour over the ginger refresher cordial to just over the top of your crushed raspberries
(to the Americans reading this its like a flavour syrup for water not alcoholic)
Put the lid on your container and put in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavours meld together (this gets better the longer you leave it after a few days it goes from ginger with raspberries to raspberry with a hint of ginger)
Take your glass. Pour in about 1/4 mineral or soda water (I use mineral water)
Spoon in 2-3 teaspoons full of your mix (it may take more depending on glass size and strength of flavours)
Slowly top up with more mineral water
Sit back, sip and enjoy.
It is quite lovely as someone who is not a big drinker to sit down and have something pretty to drink with dinner it turns it into more of an event.
