Belvoir - Elderflower Cordial
Made to Mary Manners family recipe from an infusion of masses of freshly picked elderflowers with lots of fresh lemon juice, this has a delicate scented taste and makes a wonderfully refreshing drink when mixed with still or sparkling mineral water.
Belvoir Elderflower Cordial makes sensational spritzers with white wine and sparkling water and add a dash to a gin or vodka and tonic to really enliven it.
Add some to rev up a Gooseberry Fool, as a great base for a fresh fruit salad or use to it to make a stunning sorbet; it can enhance a whole host of desserts.
Drink it hot as a healthy toddy: elderflower has been known to have beneficial properties in the treatment of colds and flu since Roman times.
