Lemon Cordial

12 Finished drink

An exceedingly simple recipe this week, but with the estival heat there is no better time to publish a recipe for a chilled, tangy lemon drink that goes down so well on a hot summer’s day. This one comes from my maternal grandfather……..

My grandfather liked his gadgets and was an early adopter of many, from video recorders to stylophones, bread slicers to blenders. My grandfather was a bank manager, but he was good with more than number. During the Second World War he was with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME). He was good with his hands and he told me that whilst in training for REME he created a musical synthesiser. He told me that he wondered whether it was in fact the first and whether he could have been a millionaire!

He also played the violin, I guess that and his flirting with a synthesiser led him to buy a musical gadget called a stylophone. And just how many of you can recall Rolf Harris’ stylophone?………………

……………. So here is the original recipe, from some 40 years ago…… easy, delicious and perfect for the summer…………
