Elderflower Champagne Recipe

This champagne is a delightfully refreshing drink for those hot days or on special occasions. It is alcoholic so don't drink and drive.

Elderflower Champagne

3.5 cups elderflowers (packed firmly)
1 lemon sliced
3.5 cups sugar
150ml vinegar
5l water

Mix altogether in a clean bucket, cover tightly with a clean cloth and stand for four days. Bottle in plastic cool drink bottles and allow to sit for a week to 10 days and drink before six weeks. Again this drink may be quite gassy, so chill before opening and either open it over the sink or outside.

I love the pretty flowers!
In view of the Cider experience, I might pass on the champagne!
