Elderflower Soda Recipe
1 ounce Elderberry Flower Syrup (IKEA or brew your own)
1 cup sparkling water (plain)
Lots of ice
Fill a glass or pitcher to the rim with ice, just before serving. You are going to want to use a ratio of 1 ounce syrup to 1 cup sparkling water. The side of the syrup bottle might tell you differently, but if you use much more syrup than that your soda is going to be too sweet and strong. For a pitcher, you will use 6 ounces of syrup and six cups of sparkling water. Stir well before enjoying. Adjust syrup to taste a splash at a time.
(hs note: I tried this with a ratio of 1 1/ 2 ounces of syrup to 1 cup sparkling water and it was too strong and sweet for my tastes.)
