Cucumber Elderflower Cordial
As odd as the flavor pairing in this nonalcoholic drink seems, cucumber water and elderflower work very well together. You can also omit the cucumber for a very pure, sweet elderflower cordial that can be served as you would a dessert wine.
5 parts water
Cucumber slices to taste
1 part D’Arbo Elderflower Syrup
Optional: Lemon Juice to taste
1. Steep the cucumber slices in the ice water for up to a few hours, until your desired level of cucumber flavor is infused. Stronger cucumber flavor will stand up to the elderflower syrup better.
2. Stir in elderflower syrup.
3. Taste, and if desired add fresh squeezed lemon juice to taste.
4. Serve over ice.
