Bottled Sunshine

The other day I noticed that last year's supply of elderflower cordial was coming to an end. This made me panic slightly as I hadn't made any this year and elderflower season was almost over. Although not exactly full of hope I went out to find some anyway and I actually managed to find about 20 - 30 rather small heads of blossoms that hadn't turned brown yet. As they were very small I went a little heavier than usual on the lemon. 

 
The result is a delicious and refreshing lemon cordial with a hint of elderflower, which I am sure would also taste great as a hot drink in winter, meaning I can enjoy sips of sunshine all year round. I'm so glad I made the effort to look for some elderflower in July, though next year I will definitely go earlier and hey, there's always elderberry season to come this year.
