Rose and Raspberry Cordial. A gorgeous summer drink. Dilute with flat or sparkling water or prosecco. Perfect to cool you down on a warm summer evening.
- 200 g (2 cups) raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- 150 g (¾ cup) granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon rose water
Place the raspberries, sugar and white wine vinegar into a small pan and place over a very low heat, stirring occasionally. When the berries begin to release their juice, turn the heat up slightly, allowing the sugar to dissolve, then bring the fruit to a gentle simmer.
Allow to simmer for five minutes until the berries pulp down. Sieve into a bowl, pressing the pulp through the sieve with the back of a spoon.
Return the pips to the pan with 200ml cold water. Bring the water to a gentle simmer and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
Sieve the resulting liquid into the previously sieved pulp and stir. Allow to cool.
Add the rose water and stir. Pour into a glass bottle and store in the fridge.
Dilute to taste.
