Made this for my book club for ir reciew or Anne of Green Gables, our classic read of the year. Easy to make...very easy. The only thing that takes any time is cleaning out the raspberry seeds from your strainer. Could of changes I made as I tasted the cordial...I thought the six cups of water sounded like too much and so I reduced it to 4-1/2. I also reduced the lemon juice but I had one lemon that I got nearly 2/3-cup of juice from. I think it's a nice, sweet little drink but it's a cordial and it is supposed to be. Look at the size of antique cordial glasses and you'll see it's a small serving...
I was just getting ready to post this very recipe. I too have Kate MacDonald's wonderful little "Anne" cookbook. This is a delightful drink. The young girls especially like it.
I have to confess, the idea of the Raspberry Cordial had me so excited. I have been a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables since I can remember. This is a little time consuming to make, and the taste is very different. I can't decide if I like it or not. It's unlike anything I have ever had before in my life.
