If you grew up in Slovenia you must have tasted this simple, homemade, yet very tasteful and refreshing beverage. A drink made of Elderflower, sugar and citric acid, called Elderflower cordial or Elderflower syrup. It’s a drink that almost every Slovenian mother or grandmother knows how to make by herself. Well, we are pretty sure that most of the male population know how to prepare it too, Usually the stronger version of it, one that has been fermented.
The drink is so popular in Slovenia they even sell syrup in supermarkets, serve them in bars, but nothing can compare to the one you make at home. We bring home a bottle of syrup and later thin it with tap or sparking water.
