Elderflower Cordial Concentrate

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a terrific drink for hot summer days, and a fantastic rival to lemonade. You'll find food grade citric acid at a health food store or Asian market. Since this recipe makes a concentrate, dilute with water to taste or pour over ice to serve."
