This is so addictive. Pink grapefruit cordial mixed with soda water, it’s the perfect pre-dinner drink. Just get some.


  • Bickfords pink grapefruit cordial
  • Soda water
  • Garnish with slice of pink grapefruit and sugar-rimmed glass


  • Decorate the glass by pressing the rim of the glass into your grapefruit to wet it (or a lemon, or water, if you don’t have one)
  • Then press the rim into a plate of sugar, to make pretty
  • Fill glass halfway with ice cubes
  • Prepare your soda water – either bottled, or fizz it in a sodastream
  • Add cordial and soda water to taste – roughly 1 part cordial to 4 parts water
  • Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.

Woolworths, Coles and specialty stores all now have fantastic ranges of fruit cordials these days.
I started taking cordials seriously after discovering a ginger and rhubarb cordial at an exotic deli in Crows Nest and then discovered the pleasures of elderflower and pomegranate cordial from Woolies! Discovering this pink grapefruit flavour was a happy day, as I’ve always loved pink grapefruit, since having a tree in the backyard growing up. Heavenly!
