One of the most common items found behind a bar and perhaps in your own kitchen cabinet is ‘Rose’s Lime’. It is a cheap, processed, and synthetic product. But a great Lime Cordial can be an amazing thing to learn to make and is essential in a traditional Gimlet or even many Tropical drinks. This recipe comes from the great mind of Jeffrey Morgenthaler, and if you haven’t read his books or subscribed to his blog, you really should!
250 g sugar
8 oz/240 ml hot water
1½ oz/45 ml fresh lime juice (measured by volume)
1½ oz/45 ml freshly grated lime peel (measured by volume)
1 oz/30 ml citric acid (measured by volume)
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender.
Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds.
Strain with a fine strainer.
Bottle and refrigerate.
