This is an easy to make refreshing drink made from elderflowers. These start to make an appearance around June. Once made and bottled it can be frozen and used when required. I first made it with my children who helped to pick the flowers and then make the drink. They still enjoy it and is now an early summer ritual. It's nice as a gin mixer, or diluted with soda or sparkling water for a change. Can be made without the oranges and less lemon according to your preference.
