Cordial has its origins in the UK, and it’s simply an old fashioned sweet non alcoholic beverage usually served after meals. It is also popular in Australia and New Zealand, and it is similar what Kool-Aid is for Americans.

Lemon Cordial Recipe
Make a simple sugar syrup by bringing equal quantities of water and white sugar to a gentle simmer until all sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool. Mix 750ml of sugar syrup with 250ml of fresh lemon juice and pour into clean, dry bottles and seal. When ready to serve, fill each chilled glass with 1/3 cordial and 2/3 mineral water, together with plenty of ice and a hint of fresh mint.
