Rinse the flower clusters and drain. Rinse and thinly slice the lemons.

Bring the water to a boil and dissolve the sugar. Add the citric acid.

In layers, add the elderflowers and the lemon slices in a pot and pour on the sugar water.

Cover and, after it has cooled, store cold for 2 – 3 days.

Rinse bottles with water where you have dissolved a tad sodium benzoate. Pour the syrup through a strainer and bottle. Store cold.

Dilute syrup with three or four times as much water, or Prosecco, or with a tad of Vodka, or some Sprite. It’s ok to omit the Sprite.
