You will need:
Ice lolly mould
Elderflower cordial (homemade or shop bought)
Zest of 1 lemon
Make up the elderflower cordial a little stronger than you would if you were drinking it.
Put the lemon zest into the bottom of each mould and top up with the diluted cordial.
Freeze, wait and enjoy!
You might have to try and convince people that it’s not just water you’ve frozen but as soon as they try them they’ll be glad they did! Elderflower is so distinctive and the lemon and lemongrass already in the cordial work so well with the added lemon zest. Floral, easy, zesty and refreshing, like a little piece of frozen summer.
I have also made some rather tasty elderflower, cucumber and mint gin so if you wanted to try a slightly more grown up version of these ice lollies, using some of that gin would be delicious!
