On weeknights, I love to relax with a glass of elderflower soda, each sip blooming with the essence of spring and summer. Now that I make my own elderflower cordial, the associations are not just with my time in England, but also the lovely days and places where I foraged the blossoms here in Southern California.
How about you? Is your favorite weeknight treat a beverage?
If you're interested in elderflower cordial, I highly recommend making your own if possible. Otherwise, the Belvoir Fruit Farms brand is very good, and Faith has recommended the elderflower concentrate from IKEA.
