The Elders are now in flower, so time to make some FIZZ.
Take 6 heads of sun-kissed Elder flowers,
the zest and juice of one large Lemon,
two tablespoons of white wine vinegar,
650 gms of sugar,
and 6 ½ litres of water.
Combine all ingredients in clean plastic bucket, stir, and leave covered for 24 hrs.
Strain through muslin, and bottle in strong flip-top 'corona' bottles (see picture 2). Leave for at least 2 weeks before tasting.
N.B. Always open bottles outdoors; they can be very lively. Serve ice cold.
