Elder flower liqueur

A bottle of liquid gold ?
After I finally cracked the code on how NOT to make a bitter tasting elder flower aquavita, I continued on task to make elder flower liqueur, which should taste of Danish Summer.

Again I used this recipe on hyldeblomst likør as starting point. I must admit, that it feels a little bite like Christmas, where you have to wait for almost one month, before you can finally open your Christmas presents. I have exactly the same feeling about, when I an going to taste the very first drop of elder flower liqueur in one month time.

Anyway let´s get back to business and let me share the recipe on my version of elder flower liqueur with you.

Elder flower liqueur:

  • 7 dl elder flower aquavita
  • 4 teaspoons of honey
  • ½ lemon (organic) - only the zest
  1. Start by sterilising the bottle with boiling water.
  2. Add the honey, lemon zest and elder flower aquavita into the bottle.
  3. Store the bottle in a dark place and shake it from time to time.
  4. Let the lemon zest infuse the elder flower liqueur for one month, before you remove it by passing the liqueur through a funnel covered with coffee filter paper.
  5. Pour the elder flower liqueur into a new sterilised bottle.
  6. Consider to add more honey, if you would a more sweet liqueur.
  7. Enjoy :-)
