I have a few times tried to make this essence , which is based on a white mulled wine essence from a magazine , which I think was exciting to try . But here I modified it a little to my taste.
Content of essence:
1/2 liter of water
1/2 liter of concentrated elderflower juice
2 sticks cinnamon
1 Tbsp. Orange peel
1 tsp. cardamom
1 Tbsp. lemon
1 Tbsp. Honey or acacia honey
It boiles together for two hours on low heat and then cool down and stored cold for the next day . The next day , it is a thick syrup consisten and should be filtered to get a more clear and clean essence . Now the essence is ready for use .
For mulled wine boil it up again with 1 or 2 bottles of white wine depents on taste and pour a filling consisting of chopped dried apricots , raisins and almond splinters.
But it is also quite good as just tea , come a few drops in a cup of boiling water and there you have a delicious tea , but beware it is a strong essence so not too much .
