Homemade Fizz

 

                             

Elderflower Champagne

I hope this works; there are masses of flowers about at the moment and plenty more to come.  Pick them when they are dry, although this seems to be a bit tricky lately, and follow the recipe on the River Cottage link below. It’s well worth making a cordial as well (tons of recipes online) which is utterly refreshing, it’s like the best bits of a British summer in every gulp. It also benefits from a quick spritz with a dash of Gin, ice and lemon. If only it felt like summer at the moment – good for the garden though eh?
