How to make elderflower gin
- 1 bottle Gin
- 5-8 per bottle Elderflower sprigs,
- Lemon rind, couple of strips
- STEP 1
Pour your gin into a glass bowl for safe-keeping. Shake off your elderflower sprigs to remove any bugs or dirt, then add them to both empty bottles.
- STEP 2
Add a couple of tablespoons of sugar and a couple of strips of lemon rind, then refill the bottles with gin. Shake to mix everything together.
- STEP 3
After about a week, the gin should take on a pale yellow colour. Taste, and if you're happy with the flavour, strain through a muslin cloth.
