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 orange zest can be dehydrated for future use eg: orange powder, orange sugar or even as a natural food colouring. 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.

Orange 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.
