I was very pleased with the whole process of picking elderflowers and washing them and then came the SUGAR... woaweeee what a lot of sugar to make a super flower syrup
While this was boiling up and shouting at the England team was coming from the lounge I popped outside to contribute to emptying a bottle of bubbly wine to decant the cordial into (excuses excuses.... on a hot summer sunday afternoon !)
(Why won't this picture flip to the right ?)
Then came the lemons... smell that zest, see that yellow happy summer colour...
and hey presto... 2 bottles of delicious zesty, elderflower cordial for happy summer sundowners, best served with ice, sparkling water and a sprig of mint. Yummy xox
(another pic that won't flip...sorry)
Makes a perfect summer gift for family and friends, make a fun label as Alice did in the above photo for my work colleagues xox
