My husband made the huge mistake of surprising me with a delicious drink a couple weeks ago. It was so good, I have him making it for me on a daily basis. I think he could be getting sick and tired of it, but he did it to himself. NO sympathy. Here is the recipe for........
THE ELDER MENTE STATESMAN
Lime Soda Water - 4 parts
Elderflower Cordial - 1 part
Fresh Mint - as much or as little as you like
Slice of Lime
Shake, and pour over ice. Crushed if you got it.
Now, brace yourself for the most sensational thing to hit your taste buds in awhile!
Introducing............The Elder Mente Statesman and it's creator, my main man, Trevor.
I understand Elderflowers grow in Illinois and it's relatively easy to make you're own elderflower cordial. I WILL be trying that after moving home. And I may just make my husband help. He'll be thrilled. Love you Pips! (That's one (out of MANY) of my husbands "pet" names. Don't ask)
