Raspberry Cordial

“…It begins with an ‘r’ and a ‘c’ and it’s bright red in color. I love bright red drinks, don’t you? They taste twice as good as any other color.”

–Chapter 16, Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Raspberry Cordial

  • 4 Cups Fresh or Frozen Raspberries (~600 g)
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Cups Boiling Water
  • 2 Lemons, juiced + 1 Lemon for Garnish, thinly sliced (optional)

Combine the berries & sugar in a large pot over medium heat & cook until the sugar is dissolved. Use a potato masher to squash the berries thoroughly until it’s like a lumpy syrup, or jam.

Place a mesh strainer over a pitcher & pour the raspberry/sugar mixture into the strainer. Stir it around to help get the juice into the pitcher. It also helps to pour a little bit of the hot water through it. Discard the seeds & pulp. Stir in the fresh lemon juice & then pour the hot water into the pitcher as well & stir.

Let the drink cool & then place it in the fridge to chill. When you serve it, you can place a thin slice of lemon in each glass, if you’d like.

Original recipe from the Anne of Green Gables Cookbook by Kate McDonald.
