Flower Power: Chris, the office manager at HWV, made me a present of this delectable stuff on Friday, in time to celebrate a hopeful end to this phase of immigration frustration.
I have had elderflowers and berries on the brain for a while. And want to plant some of the native Sambucus americana in Le Park (what do I call it?...maybe we can even christen it whatever we like; haven't discuseed that yet). How's Le Park?
This cordial smells divine. No other way to describe it. One sniff and you smile. It is floral without being cloying. It is non alcoholic, and makes a lovely drink with bubbly water. But you know me. I had to add it to Prosecco.
Bottlegreen is based in the Cotswalds, England, and I cannot now imagine my sipping life without some elderflower syrup in the fridge. My bottle was bought a Dean and Deluca for $8.
End of infomercial. No, I was not sent free samples. But I was sent free samples of something else recently, and I am in a quandary. Advertizing. Is a small sample set worth my rave revue? Shall I set up a blind tasting? If I were sent a year's supply, oh yes, I would consider it.
