I realised the sugar was missing from the ingredient list but judged it to be 3 cups, after looking at *Alia*'s recipe #231060. I did a double batch and it made slightly more than 2 litres (used an old Coke bottle) and I used 1 part cordial to 9 parts water to reconstitute. None of us like bits of peel so instead I simmered an orange skin half over a low heat til things dissolved, and then pulled it out after the syrup had cooled. This is tasty, and cheap, but I'd probably up the orange juice next time, or pull back on the sugar, to give more colour. Thanks *Alia* !
