Notes

Tips:
For a more sour lemonade add more lemons. For a sweeter lemonade add more elderflower syrup or more honey mixture.
I state not to overheat the honey mixture, as it can decrease the health benefits of the honey. We used a raw, unfiltered honey. Choose a brand that has a mild taste and not so “honey-ish” if that makes sense.
You can use any elderflower “concentrate” also known as a syrup. You can find it at IKEA or get it on amazon.
