The Herbaliser Recipe

I made my own elderflower liqueur by infusing flowers from local elderberry bushes in vodka for a few weeks, then diluting with simple syrup to make a cordial. St. Germain, the elderflower liqueur from France, is the natural choice for those who didn't harvest a bushel of elderflowers in the spring; if you can't find Bärenjäger you can use Drambuie.
