Mint Cordial

Mint cordial is a very simple yet refreshing drink with that cooling aroma and flavour of mint. Mint has long been considered a calming herb that helps with digestion. This cordial can also be used in cocktails, like Mint Julep or spooned over a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it also goes exceptionally well with strawberries.

Once you’ve tasted it, we’re sure you will find many more uses for this syrup. This is such a beautiful drink that we think it won’t last long in your fridge, so best to just double up the recipe so that you won’t be too disappointed when it’s all gone.
