Recipe For Lime Cordial

If you couldn’t guess it from my blog name let me tell you how much I love limes! I especially love them with tequila and triple sec in a margarita. When we have guests I fill a jug with water and fresh mint and lime ice cubes. I make the ice cubes by cutting limes into quarters and keeping them in the freezer. I squeeze fresh limes when they are in season and freeze the juice in an ice cube tray, saving them for a ‘rainy day’. I even use lime essential oil when cleaning out my fridge to get that beautiful citrus smell. A while back I thought about making lime cordial and headed over to Celia’s blog to see if she had a signature recipe. At that time there wasn’t one on Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and so I left the idea mulling around until I could make one up. This is the lime cordial recipe I discovered through a bit of fiddling. I’m going to try it with granadilla’s the next time I get given some.

have you ever used essential oils?

I used my lime cordial for a refreshing summer alcoholic drink of Vodka, Lime Cordial and Bitter Lemon. Tuesday’s used to be dedicated to pasta recipes, with the theme Tandy Tuesday’s using 5 ingredients. This was initiated by my friend Cindy but as Dave and I are no longer eating as much pasta as we used to, I have not been posting much on a Tuesday. For this year I have decided to dedicate Tandy Tuesday’s to my own recipes. I hope you enjoy what I have created.

  3. I would love your cocktail with your lime cordial. For some reason, I haven’t seen bitter lemon in years…it was one of my favorite mixers for vodka.
