I’ve been enjoying sips of Elderberry Syrup all winter long, especially when I feel a twinge in my throat or a tickle in my nose. The recipe I follow, however, doesn’t have any sour flavors. With the raw honey, it’s actually quite sweet. Learn how to make your own by reading this past Growing Stories post.
I’ve been brewing kombucha for a few years now and always have a jug of it in the fridge. I think it’s a healthy, delicious, and refreshing alternative to soda or juice. All the information you’d ever want to know about kombucha (and maybe more) is available at www.kombuchakamp.com, so I won’t go into too many details.
With elderberry syrup and kombucha sharing shelf space on the door of our refrigerator, I was bound to discover how well they mix sooner or later. Mmmmm. The flavors in both drinks are quite concentrated, so I like to add a few ice cubes or some club soda. If you’re looking for a great alcoholic drink, dry mixing kombucha, elderberry syrup, and club soda with gin.
Cheers to your health in the new year!
