|Elderflowers macerating in vodka|
Elderflowers grow all over Prospect Park and another artisanal cocktail enthusiast told me that he'd made his own liqueur from the flowers in the park. I made a point of getting together with another friend, a local forager and farmer, to hunt for the blossoms. Armed with wildflower guides we set out and identified plenty of look a likes but came home empty handed. A second foray found what we were looking for.
