Making Cordials

Thanks for watching the very first livestream video from Pixie’s Pocket!

You can skip ahead to the five minute mark for the cordial making portion to begin.


Don’t have time to watch the whole thing? Here’s the short version:

Ingredient + Sugar + Booze + Time = Delicious!

  • fill jar with fruit
  • if it is a firm fruit, smash it up
  • layer with sugar
  • let it sit for a while and it will draw out the juice
  • add booze of choice
  • ignore for a month or more
  • strain and taste
  • sweeten if you want
  • bottle and label
  • enjoy!
