Ever made mint cordial before? 

Well neither had I until I was given this super easy recipe and then I realized it was mint to be and that was all the encouragemint I needed!

Try making this delicious, refreshing, stomach settling cordial and enjoy it in so many ways. Over crushed ice, mixed with spring water, frozen into cubes or pops, spooned over ice-cream. It’s SOoo good that it won’t last long enough and you may have to make double!
