Blood Tonic

What's so special about this cordial?

We make this seasonal cordial once per year, just before Autumn sets in. At this point all the Autumn varieties of berries, such as Autumn Bliss are harvested (along with their leaves), and are blended with zests and other leaves, such as nettles and mint.

Because we don't want to compromise the pure flavour of berries we don't add any lemon juice. You will therefore need to add some citrus or vinegar to your finished drink to balance the sweetness.

How to serve

1oz Blood Tonic cordial
3oz Sparkling water
2 tsp Cider vinegar or 1 tsp lemon juice
Stir well and add plenty of ice
Garnish with a sprig of mint

Why not use this to make a fancy Kir Royale?
Also great with Gin or Tequila.
