Elderflower Fizz

Elderflower Fizz

Watch out for elderflowers as they start appearing in many parks and public spaces at this time of year. This drink has a slight fizz and uses dates instead of sugar to add a subtle sweetness. A perfectly refreshing summer drink

Ingredients

10 elderflower heads

10 dates

½ a lemon

1 litre of water

 

Method

1: Rinse the elderflower heads in water to wash off any bugs and chop off the stalks. 

2: Place the elderflowers in a clean litre jar with a rubber seal.

3: Add the dates and lemon and fill with water leaving a 3 centimetre gap at the top.  Close the lid but do not seal.

4: Leave the jar in a warm space covered with a tea towel.

5: After three days pour the liquid through a sieve and funnel into a clean bottle.

6: Keep in the fridge for up to a week.
