Made to Mary Manners’ family recipe, from an infusion of freshly picked elderflowers and lots of fresh lemon juice, this has a delicate taste and makes a wonderfully refreshing drink when mixed with still or sparkling mineral water.
Belvoir Elderflower Cordial makes sensational spritzers with white wine and sparkling water, or add a dash to enliven a gin or vodka and tonic. Use it to rev up a gooseberry fool, as a great base for a fresh fruit salad or to make a stunning sorbet – it can enhance a whole host of desserts.
You can even drink it hot as a healthy toddy. Elderflower has been known to have beneficial properties in the treatment of colds and flu since Roman times.
Ingredients: sugar, spring water, fresh elderflowers 8%, fresh lemon juice, citric acid.
