Elderberry Lemonade for a Summer Cold
For a summer cold, steamy hot cups of herbal teas just won't do. Spend the day sipping on this cool concoction full of vitamin C and elderberry, instead.
1/4 c. dried elderberries
2 c. water
juice of two lemons
sweetener to taste
10 oz cold water
Make the elderberry decocotion: combine the 2 of water with the elderberries and bring to a boil, lower to a simmer for 30 minutes. Strain out the berries and set aside.
Into a 16oz glass, put the lemon juice and 1/4 c. of the elderberry decoction. Add 10oz of cold water and sweeten to taste, then add crushed ice. Sip throughout the day.
