The middle of winter isn't always fun. The precious daylight hours are spent inside, maybe in a house, an office or a classroom, and by the time we get home nighttime has descended ~ 5pm feels like 10pm! But with a little creativity we can brighten up even the gloomiest days of winter...

Good afternoon! How wonderful would a fruity sparkling beverage be in this hot and sticky weather! There are so many syrups and cordials on the market now, designed to add flavour to sparkling or soda water, but we find it hard to find any that aren't laden with refined sugar! Homemade naturally sweetened cordials are a great alternative. This lovely honey, berry and lavender cordial recipe features in the Mondays Summer Journal, contributed by our friend Greta Kenyon. We love her edible flower ice cubes too! You can get creative and come up with your own flavours and adjust sweetness and strength to suit your palette.
