Bring the water to the boil and pour it over the elderflowers and lemons. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Stir in the citric acid. Cover and stand in a cool place for three days. Strain through a cheesecloth for 30 minutes. Pour into sterilised bottles. Store in the fridge or freezer.

Add a cinnamon stick or 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger.

The elderflowers can be replaced with lilac blossoms or blackcurrant leaves.
