Elderflower Champagne Sorbet?

I have this idea to bring elderflower champagne sorbet to Bloom in the Park, so today I went picking elderflowers! Sara, who will soon open Murphy’s seasonal shop in Tig Áine kindly offered up her elderflower trees, and the flowers are now fermenting in two containers in production. Fingers crossed it turns out OK! If it does, I’ll be sure to post a recipe!

    That sounds soo good! One of my favorite cocktails of late is St. Germain mixed with pineapple juice and topped off with Champagne. I imagine if you froze that, it’d be amazing too.

    They have elderflower syrup at Ikea. Goes nicely in a vodka tonic. I would love to try and make something with these flowers myself.

    Yumm! I once had an elderflower cocktail that was amazing. I think it will make an awesome combination with champagne and sorbet…perfectly delicate!

    I have a huge honeysuckle bush in my front yard and wanted to try something with it. I just found a recipe for honeysuckle sorbet. Anyone ever tried this before?
