    Every time my elderberry tree has flowers I make this drink and have done for years. My recipe is almost identical to this one used. I no longer buy mix-up cordial for my family, we much prefer to drink this. I tend to mix it with water for everyday drinking but for a special twist we use soda water and mint leaves or strawberries. My children always helpl make this recipe.  -  15 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
