Elderflower Spritz

Elderflower has long been used in traditional medicine all over the world in many different cultures due to its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. It has most commonly been used for colds and flu, sinus infections, and other respiratory disturbances.

I could pretend that this is why I decided on this cocktail/mocktail but it’s not. I had no idea Elderflower even had any medicinal properties until after I made, photographed and tasted this.

tasty, glamorous looking, and made of plants that are good for you! I mean… maybe not the syrup… or the alcohol, but the flower itself… originally. Ok, well it’s tasty and pretty.
