Elderflower Cocktail

Do you have an Ikea near you?  The next time you're there buying bookshelves, pick up some of this elderflower syrup.  Cause we all know that by the time you're done trying to put together those bookshelves with that tiny little Allen wrench and instructions in Swedish, you're going to need a drink.

The syrup is herbal and citrusy and blends really nicely with gin.  Don't confuse this with Elderflower liqueur which is also lovely, but not the same.
