Blackberry Peppercorn Cordial, a healthy and delicious soda alternative. Great with club soda, water, in lemonade or even in cocktails. Refined sugar free.
Put blackberries into a medium sauce pan and mash them using a potato masher or a fork.
Add the water and ground pepper. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat, cover and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Take the mix off the heat and strain using a cheesecloth. Squeeze to get as much liquid out as possible (careful not to burn yourself).
Put the strained juice back into the sauce pan (i just give it a quick rinse to get out any blackberry pieces). Add the raw sugar and lemon juice.
Stir until sugar has fully dissolved. Pour the mixture into a clean bottle or jar and seal. Store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
