Using the pink Elderflowers from my garden I made this beautiful pink Elderflower cordial.  I just love the color.  It is delicious with sparkling water or as an addition to a glass of Prosecco.  I so enjoy using things from my garden to make delicious things to eat and drink.


  • 2 litres of water
  • 2 kg of Sugar
  • 25 heads of Elderflower (unwashed)
  • 2 Lemons, zested and cut into large slices
  • 85g Citric Acid



Dissolve the Sugar in the water.  Once the Sugar is dissolved bring the mixture to the boil and then allow to cool for approximately 10 minutes.




Add the Lemon Zest, Lemon slices, Elderflowers and Citric Acid.









Leave to infuse for 24 hours.





Strain and put into sterilised bottles.


Dilute to taste.


This will last for ages if airtight.  Once you have opened a bottle it needs to be kept in the fridge.
