Blowing Bubbles

What other blog takes you from shit to champagne in successive posts? 

 Back here: June 24th I made some elderflower champagne. I bottled it a week later and left it for a generous 4 weeks before sampling.  Would it be bubbly???

Would it hell!

Something suitable to celebrate Olympic gold.

...or any other excuse

It tastes really refreshing, and the elderflower aroma is so delicate.  It seems you can bottle it!


  1. That looks wonderful! I meant to make some this year but finding a rain-free window to go out and gather elderflowers was quite a challenge this year!

  2. Looks great - hope it cherred you up!

  3. Looks wonderful! Lots of the bottle also.

  4. Mmmm...I think I want to try this next year...I can't remember if you printed the recipe Mal??

    How's the allotment looking now??

    Had any joy on rent rebate?

  5. Wow! That's pretty impressive - shame elderflower champagne probably doesn't have the same healing properties as elderflower tea!!!
