Searching for something to spice up your 'usual' drinks and make them more festive? This Christmas I have created a winter version of my fruit cordial to do just that. Made from Cranberries, orange and ginger, it is delicious and easy and again, freezes well so you can pop it in tupperware and then scoop it out whenever needed! I like it with prosecco, in a G&T or on it's own with ginger ale. It lends itself well to mocktails, if you have a guest who would like a soft option or if you fancy a night off the sauce but still want the evening to feel like an event.
3cm cube ginger
1 tsp grated orange zest
380 ml water
Place the cranberries and the water in a pan and bring to the boil. Cook for a few minutes until the berries begin to burst, then use a a potato masher to crush them.
Remove from the heat and add the orange zest and ginger, then leave to combine for 2 hours.⠀
Now add the sugar and heat the mixture again until it is all dissolved.⠀
Strain over a bowl using a muslin cloth or sieve (but don't push the mixture through too much so that it stays clear. Put in tupperware and freeze, ready to scoop out into your mixer of choice whenever needed!
