I’ve been thinking about making some “champagne” style wines and drinks over the past few weeks… I missed the obligatory elderflower.
Cropped upon a couple of article based around various fizzy wines (links below).
Lavender & Rose petal Fizzy
30 Lavender heads
6 Rose heads
1.5 kilos sugar
1 packet posh champagne yeast
Optional: white trap concentrate / handful of raisins.
As ever, my process is to put it all in a jar and leave it!
I preboiled water and let it cool to touch heat, then added all the plant parts; I de-petaled the rose heads and took all the sex organs… In figure that there must be something worth keeping in them… I’ll leave this to brew for three days, and transfer into some lush swing-top bottle I blagged from Mark…. More on him in the future! I reckon a good month or two and we’ll have some floral fizzy wine.
