elderflowers are calling my name

On Saturday, I had a Nikolaihof Wachau Hollunderbluten-Biodynamic Elderflower Syrup spritzer at The Slanted Door.

How many times must I truly express my gratitude to IKEA in a week??? A glass of mineral water and this concentrate (for $4) suddenly makes the world a better place!

Now I’m off to research all of the fun British spritzer recipes I can find that call for elderflower syrup…. and I’ll let you know what I find!
