Title: Sparkling Drinks: 'Meldarfizz' and 'Rosemint Cordial'
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 25 June 2003, 00:42:00
This is of course no lemonade, because we don't have lemons, but the equivalent, Judy provided the names!

One of the drinks the kids of Santharia love is the fruity, pink version of the sparkling drinks. The herbal drink is welcome mostly by adults, especially when cooled in the water of a fresh river before served.

Meldarfizz: A sparkling fruit drink

1 barrel fresh water
1 firkin honey (preferable of a light thin quality) or another light tasting sweetener
1 sip redberry syrup
10 to 20 meldarapples, finely  chopped
Some vinterberries if available

Rosemint Cordial: A sparkling herb drink

1 barrel fresh water
1 firkin honey (preferable of a light thin quality) or another light tasting sweetener
1/2 a  sip redberry syrup
1/2 a sip of foridus juice
3 middle sized young leaves of the icemilk, chopped (not more!)
1 to 2 dipper  of leaves of the rosemint (roughly two muts)


Put all ingredients together in a big bowl and mix them well, so that the honey dissolves completely. Keep it in a warm place for three days, stirring it two times a day.

After this time the mixture will begin to sparkle, sieve it well and put it in firm bottles or other closed containers. Keep it in a cool place and it will be ready to drink after two weeks. Consume it in four weeks.

Attention: The containers have to be strong and without internal tensions to avoid an explosion! The gases which are developing in the drink are enormous! Open the bottles carefully and slowly!

Note: Some insist, that this drinks are containing small amouts of alkohol and should not be served to children, parents however deny this.

Hey people, I made it two weeks ago with lemons and elder flowers (and sugar), it is drinkable - and sparkling!

Oooh, a wonderful addition to our Santharian beverages!  Even the description is cooling (and it's a very hot day here in Toronto...)

How about 'Medlarfizz' for the first potation... and 'Rosemint Cordial' for the second?

Wish I could taste your lemon version - and that reminds me that some sort of citrus fruit would be very useful in Caelereth - maybe imported from the Isles, or from another continent than Sarvonia... I don't suppose anything could grow around Strata, could it?   Must see what I can come up with.

Thanks Judith :-), will change it soon!

We could have some lemonlike fruits around Strata and east of Thalambath, but not enough to supply the whole continent. But they could grow in Aeruillin and be a major export/import article.

The lemonade I made has the dominating taste of the elder flowers, the lemon and sugur seems only to be a kind of basic ingredient. I'm just about to test another variety with lemon balm.

Anybody interested in the receit for the elder-lemonade, though it is too late for this year?
