Summer is in full swing here. Theoretically. As I write this, I am wearing thick socks and have my legs under a blanket, because obviously summer has taken a mini vacation from Germany, but the hot temperatures are waiting just around the corner. So time for a simple little recipe for elderflower lemonade.

In the last years Hugo cocktails became extremely popular in summer and even though I like the taste of them, the Prosecco in it, gets me drunk after a glass (I can deal with wine and even hard booze, but the bubbly always kills me). So this lemonade is basically a virgin Hugo.

I find it extremely refreshing and not too sweet, also it doesn’t give you a caffeine rush like Iced Tea. So perfect for a hot summer day.
