Elderflower cordial is a very versatile ingredient and goes extremely well with Prosecco! Add to Prosecco and drink – easy peasy, or with a little more effort make a brilliant summer jelly!
“Elderflower has been used in traditional medicine all over the world in many different cultures due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. The most common uses are for colds and flu, sinus infections, and other respiratory disturbances.” (1)
- 1 pint of Prosecco
- 4 leaves of gelatine (or 12g sachet equivalent)
- 100ml elderflower cordial
- 3 table spoons of honey
- Prepare your gelatine as per the packet instructions. I used platinum grade leaf gelatine which requires soaking in ice cold water for 5 minutes.
- Pour your Prosecco into a saucepan and heat gently – do not allow to boil.
- Add your cordial and honey to a separate small saucepan and heat until warm and combined.
- Pour your honey and cordial mix into your Prosecco and stir well.
- Add your gelatine – if using the leaf gelatine squeeze well to remove excess water and add to your Prosecco.
- Once combined, taste and add more honey if you need to.
- Remove from the heat and pour into glasses or ramekins and refrigerate. These take a bit longer to set so leave them overnight.
