You will get a wonderful color on the cordial if you let the peel stay on the rhubarb and if you want, you can also add a handfull of raspberries or strawberries for color and taste.

This is raw cordial so it has shorter shelf life than boiled cordials, but it’s the taste of season and summer so enjoy the moment. Bring a bottle at the summer party, it will guaranteed be a popular gift.
