editor recipe notes

During Spring and Summer time, you always pass by elderflower trees. They give such a pleasant scent while blooming. So it is the best time to harvest the flowers and make a syrup out of them. We are using simple white wine, some sugar, and elderflowers. Once we make the syrup, you can keep it refrigerated for several months. The taste and scent differ from the usual Elderflower Syrups you can buy from certain syrup producers. It pairs very well with juniper and rosemary. So we decided to make a fizzy herbal drink out of it. We used the HYGGE Gin to give it a good backbone, the lemon for acidity, and some rosemary to combine all those flavors and make them perfect for a beautiful summer drink.
