D.I.Y. Lime Cordial

Lime Cordial is a sweet tart key ingredient for Gimlets. This will replace the corn syrup filled Roses Sweetened Lime that you can find at any liquor store.

Lime Cordial Recipe (Employee’s Only) 

  • 4 cups fresh lime juice
  • 2.5 cups agave nectar
  • 40 kaffir lime leaves

Add all ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil. I also added the lime zest for an added…zest.

After you bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and keep there for 35 minutes or it has turned into a syrup.

Separate the solids

Allow the mixture to cool and bottle. I made some great custom labels to add a unique feel. These make great gifts. They should keep for a few weeks.


  • 2 oz gin
  • 3/4 oz lime cordial
  • lime wheel
  • Build in a iced rocks glass and garnish with lime
