Elderflower spritz

June 28th, 2010


We’re lucky enough to have an elder at the bottom of our garden and I’ve been eagerly anticipating the advent of the flowers since January, fast forward to June and the flowers are in full bloom. After fashioning a hook, we harvested a load of flowers and using this recipe made elderflower cordial, filling the flat with the scent of elderflowers in the process.

With the baking hot weather on Saturday, we decided to serve big jugs of elderflower spritz. Simply elderflower cordial and soda water with a few slices of cucumber and some mint from the garden to freshen it up even more. Cucumber, mint and elderflower make for a super refreshing combination that’s perfect for hot weather. You can certainly use shop-bought elderflower cordial and I would swap the soda water for fizz if you want something alcoholic…
