The fizz at the bottom of the garden

Handsome husband and I have come to the end of our Elderflower champagne.  It was, quite frankly, delicious! Crisp and very bubbly.  We weren't sure of the alcoholic content, prefering to do the falling over test, rather than faff about with the little spinning test tube thingy.  Our conclusions were, the younger the bottle, the less boozy- by the time we were drinking the last of the bottles, they certainly has more of a kick- but still just as delicious.

Elderflower champagne couldn't be easier to make, plus it's free (well, as long as you don't count the sugar, yeast, lemons, bottles etc)  And you get a very Tom and Barbara feeling when you crack open a fine house vintage, and who could ask for more?
