Elderflower cordial is the perfect summer drink. These days you can buy a variety of elderflower cordials in the supermarket, but why not have a go at making your own with our homemade elderflower cordial recipe. Nothing beats the delicate, floral flavour of homemade elderflower cordial. Use it as a mixer for summer cocktails, or make a few bottles as edible gifts.
- 1kg (2lb 4oz) granulated sugar
- 2 un-waxed lemons, thinly sliced

It is really important to make sure that all your utensils are spotlessly clean. Do not wash the flower heads but make sure that you have inspected them for wildlife!
