TO SERVE: Mix as you would regular cordial (to taste) over ice with chilled/soda water.

You can use a vegetable peeler to remove thin strips of zest. Blitz 5 secs/speed 9. Scrape bowl and repeat if required.

Excess lemon zest can be dehydrated for future use eg: lemon powder, lemon salt. Avoid white pith as it will give a bitter taste.

Alternatively, you can store zest in a jar or ziplock bag in the freezer - you’ll always have fresh zest on hand.

Lemon cordial concentrate will store unopened for a few months, as long as it is stored in a properly sterilised bottle. Once opened, keep in the fridge.

If using less-refined sugar, note the finished cordial will be darker in colour than pictured.

    Ultimately, we take a huge burden off your shoulders. Academic writing is stressful. Essays are an important part of the coursework. Some professors consider them more important than exams. By hiring professionals to do the work, you won’t have to worry about the outcome. It will be great! https://www.litreview.net/
