The Power of Elderflower

The Power of Elderflower Elderflower presses and cordials have a strong Victorian heritage, but versions of these recipes can be traced back to Roman times, when the nutrient-rich herb was used to lower fever and reduce inflammation. Today we use elderflower for a different set of powers. Belvoir Fruit Farms combines handpicked elderflowers with fresh lemon juice and Belvoir spring water in a light, fresh, organic elderflower lemonade cordial. Hints of honey, which linger from the scented blossoms, make their way through the gently bubbled infusion, and the pungent finish is lovely! Best served chilled, the gluten- and GMO-free, vegan press has no added flavors, artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives. Best yet, it pairs terrifically with lighter spirits, particularly gin and vodka. Purchase Elderflower Lemonade online at for $3.
