Plant based citric acid (add according to manufacturer’s instructions)
How to make
Dissolve the sugar in the water (warming over a gentle heat)
Simmer until gloopy

Leave to stand for a couple of days
Sieve through a muslin cloth
Pour into sterilised bottles
Make fantastic, gorgeous, breath-taking labels
How to enjoy
Add fizz, sparkling water or use to make gin cocktails
As requested, here is the recipe for the pink flamingo cordial recently flaunted on my Instagram and Facebook stories. I had grand plans of sharing pics of the ‘champagne’ cocktails created on our rainy Sunday but I forgot all about them as soon as the cork popped. I’ll do better next time.
This cordial is happy in the company of bubbles of any kind, it is as delish with sparkling water for those who are more abstemious than I.
Enjoy imbibing and label designing – send me your pics (unless you are too busy enjoying your homemade creation).
