Summer Day Elderflower Drink

Almost every sunday we meet with a couple of friend to have dinner and watch a movie (or rather sleep while the movie is running ;-)).

Today it has been quite warm here in Denmark and all four of us was quite tired from yesterday: Ditte was out dancing with some friends, the boys were here drinking and I was at Roskilde Festival listening to Metallica, and what a splendid experience!!! It was without doubt the best concert I have been to for many years, so I’ll definitely going to see them next time the visit Denmark (or some nearby country)!

Well, as I wrote above, we were quite wasted, so I decided to make an easy refreshment to start the evening. It only takes a few minutes to make and it tastes delicious and refreshing. The elderflower cordial in this recipe is homemade and contains both ginger and chili, which makes it less sweet than regular elderflower cordial. But if you don’t have the patience (4-5 days) to make your own, a bought one from the local super market is just as good. Just make sure that you buy good quality product 🙂

 

Ingredients (6-7 glasses)

1 bottle white wine

1 cup elderflower cordial

10 ice cubes

1 lime

5 mint leaves

 

Slice the lime and the mint leaves and add them to a pitcher together with the rest of the ingredients and stir well with a spoon to combine. In this version I have used pineapple mint, but you can use any kind of mint or even leave it out you don’t have anything or don’t like it.

Serve on a warm summer day 🙂
