RAW LIME CORDIAL
Cordials can be a bit cowlick-y, sticking out here and there: kind of tart, kind of sweet, a bit bitter, and all a touch in disarray. But giving them 24 hours to mellow or cure in the refrigerator somehow brings them into harmony. This uncooked cordial requires a lot of time but none of it at the stove, and results in mind-boggling flavor: a dense, sweet syrup with a magnified fresh lime aroma and the perfect tart zip.

- Wash limes in a sinkful of warm water, scrubbing with your hands or a vegetable brush, and let them dry them on a dish towel. Peel them with a vegetable peeler, removing as little of the underlying white pith as possible. To begin each, it's helpful to cut the polar ends off, where the stem attaches and opposite. This should produce about 140 grams of peels.
- Cut limes in half and juice them. This should produce about 2 1/2 cups of juice.
- In a non-reactive, coverable container, add sugar to juice and stir until fully dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes. Crush peels up in handfuls to release the oils as you add them into the juice mix. Stir a bit to initiate extraction of the oils. (If you're making a ginger version, wash the ginger, then shred it in a blender or food processor (no need to peel it), employing some of the lime juice to allow it to liquefy, and add it into the lime mixture, stirring well.) Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours. When ready, strain the cordial off from the peels in a fine mesh strainer or chinoise. Funnel cordial into covered container or cappable bottle and return to refrigerator for another day, to cure, before using. Makes roughly 1 liter.

This is an easy way to make cordial and it's good for gifts! Other berries such as raspberries, strawberries or blueberries may be used in place of blackberries, and rum or brandy may be used in place of the vodka.

- Pour the sugar into a 1 quart jar. Fill the remaining space with berries, but do not pack down. Fill the jar with vodka so that the berries are completely covered. Seal the jar. Let the jar stand for 2 months, shaking the jar every week. The sugar should dissolve, and the vodka will become colored.
- Strain the liquid through a metal sieve, and then through a coffee filter to remove the fruit. Pour into pretty bottles. Drink as a cordial, or use it to flavor lemonade or iced tea.

- Slice the top and bottom of lemon with a paring knife. Set one of the flat sides on your work surface. From top to bottom, following the curve of the fruit, cut away peel. Trim off any white pith from peel and discard. Discard flesh or save for another use.
- In a medium saucepan, bring sugar, 1 cup water, ginger, cream of tartar, and lemon peel to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes.
- Add lemon juice and return to a boil. Strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a clean bottle; let cool. Keep refrigerated, until ready to use, up to 2 weeks.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE CORDIALS OR FINE SPIRITS IN 6 STEPS
Estimated Reading Time 6 mins
- Choose Your Alcohol Base. For consistent results, use “neutral spirits”. People define this term in different ways. But for the purposes of making cordials, that means it should not have any added flavoring.
- Choose Your Flavor Infusions. For me, the most fun part of making cordials is playing with different flavors. You can use fruits, barks, herbs, spices, flowers, and even bacon (ever heard of bacon vodka?)
- Infuse your Alcohol. Now for the easy part, when your water infusion tastes right, drain off the water and replace it with alcohol. Close the jar and store it in a cool, dark place to infuse.
- Dilute Your Infused Alcohol. You don’t have to dilute your alcohol. If you are trying to make bacon or pepper vodka to make martinis, then you can strain your solids, and skip to step #6.
- Add Sweetener. You also don’t necessarily have to use this step. For dry flavors, like making bitters to mix in your Old-fashioned or Sazerac, just skip to step #6.
- Bottle Your Fancy Spirits. At this point, you have now made your very own fancy spirits. If you plan to give them as gifts, then put them in fancy bottles to impress your recipients.
