Let's go sweeeeettt..

Unlike me, Rizal does not like to drink the good ol plain water... his drinks has to be flavored and chilled..! For that reason, we always to stock up on cordials at home. I have noticed lately that those cordials we purchased especially the F&N brand, is not like what it used to be. It is no longer concentrated enough but very very diluted - AND it is not that cheap!
Since we've had enough of those not-so-good commercial cordials, we thought we'd make our own. With coaching from mama, I managed to make my very own syrup cordial, which surprisingly, was quite easy to do.

All you need is basically:

1. Sugar = 1kg
2. Water = 6cups (1.5ltr)
3. Coloring = 2 table spoon (depends on ur liking more means darker colour)
4. Rose flavoring = 2 teaspoon
5. Pandan leave = 1 piece and fold

The ingredients

1. Put in pandan, water & sugar. Bring to boil in medium heat. Stir to avoid sugar burning
2. Once the sugar dissolved, and the mix thickens, add coloring and flavor
3. Bring it to boil for a minute or so

Thats it. Easy peasy!
