Citrus Syrup Instructions

  • Using peeler, remove the zest from the citrus in wide strips, avoiding as much of the white pith as possible. Remove any extra pith with paring knife
  • Juice the citrus, measure the juice (about 3/4 cup juice per cup of cordial), then add equal amount of sugar and juice to blender. Blend on high speed until the sugar disolves.
  • IF USING THE SOUS VIDE METHOD: carefully transfer the peels and juice/sugar mixture to a plastic bag, then seal according to the sous vide instructions. Submerge in 135F water bath for 2 hours, then plunge bag into ice bath to cool. Strain and use immediately, or store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • IF USING THE OVERNIGHT METHOD: Combine the peels and juice/sugar mixture in a tightly sealed container, and let sit in the fridge overnight (or at least 8 hours). Strain and use immediately, or store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Drink Recipe

  • add 1 oz of your choice of Citrus Syrup to chilled Champagne Flute
  • Top up with 4 oz chilled Prosecco
  • Garnish with fresh citrus twist. Enjoy

Notes

NOTE: With any left over cordial, you can drizzle them over morning yogurt, or evening ice cream.
NOTE: It's important to choose organic fruit if possible, or at the very least wash the outer peels really well.  You don't want to infuse any sprays that the farmers used, as you are using the peel, and can be detrimental to taste (and your health).
