Lemon Syrup Recipe
We have had numerous requests for the recipe to make our Lemon Syrup which is enjoyed by all Guests at RiverBend Lodge at sometime during their stay. Well here it is:
1 lt Freshly Squeezed Lemon juice
1.5 lts water
1 Table spoon Epsom salts
1 Table spoon Tartaric acid
1 Table spoon Citric acid
Boil water and sugar, remove from heat once sugar has dissolved, add Lemon juice and other ingredients. Stir until everything is dissolved. Cool, bottle and refrigerate.
To serve - 1 part Lemon Syrup to 3 parts iced water or to taste. Garnish with a slice of Lemon and a sprig of Mint. It has been known to be enjoyed with a tot of Vodka added ....called A Gorbachov Cocktail!
Something else that is proving to be really popular from our Kitchen at RiverBend is Chef jonathan Hodders Curried Monkfish with Onion Bhaji.
