Picking bird cherry

There is an old saying, that the cobbler takes his summer holiday between the blossoming of the bird cherry and that of the lilac - because it is the most delightful time of the year. I totally go along with that.

So, this spring, me and my friend Linnéa got the idea to try making three different flower cordials. There is the obvious and classic elder flower, but we will also go for bird cherry and lilac, using the same method.

We picked the flowers and made the mixture yesterday, and now it will have to "brew" for four days in a cold and dark place before we can see how it turns out. I will share the result as well as the recipe here soon!
