This one went to someone who already sees unicorns,
so they should be fine.

I’ve spoken about cordial-making before, and wanted to share with you a few of my most recent batches, and their basic recipes.

Damiana is a flowering herb that I am quite fond of in both flavor and effect.  I’ve already rhapsodized about her beauty on this blog.

Damiana Love Cordial – a Basic Recipe

    • Play some sexy music and set the mood. (optional, but encouraged)
    • Fill your jar of choice half-full with damiana. Add any other herbs that make you feel tingly, happy, and naughty.  Some suggestions are rose petals, vanilla bean, honeysuckle flowers, horny goat weed, muira pauma…
    • Add booze!  In this case, I used a good quality, clean-flavored vodka.  Fill the jar up to the top!
    • Close jar, swish to mix it all together, and put into a dark cabinet.  Shake it occasionally.
    • Six weeks later, strain the mixture, and squeeze the liquid out of the herbs.  Add the herbs to your compost.
    • Make a sugar syrup, or honey syrup to sweeten.  The cordial in the picture above was done with honey, hence the near opaque quality of the delicious nectar!
