This recipe couldn't be any simpler – you just need access to some good, fresh elderflowers. If you don't have any in your garden, you might find some growing in woodland or along hedgerows in May and June.
Try to pick them from a spot that's away from roads, if possible, and to harvest them on a sunny day just before noon, when the flowers are open and at their most fragrant.
You can use this vodka in all sorts of cocktails, or serve it neat, ice cold, as a post dinner-party treat. It's also delicious poured over lemon sorbet.
Around 20-30 heads of fresh elderflower
1 lemon, zested
125g caster sugar
1.5 litres vodka
