“I missed cordial so much so after trying and combining a few, I came up with this one. It is similiar to Tisme's but extra fruit and slightly different method. Preservative Free! Perfect ice cold. I like to use those glass water bottles with the seal on them. It will last for weeks in the fridge.”
