Lemon, Elderflower, & Vanilla Infused Wine

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

My latest obsession has been putting flowers in anything. Flowers in my salad, flowers in my hair, flowers in my water, and flowers in my cocktails.

And while I was planning to do this post with fresh flowers, I’m not willing to wait a few more weeks to gather dandelions and violets for what I was envisioning (but I will, I will!). So today’s planned post ended up morphing into a completely different, yet oh so delightful creation that I’m so pleased to share.

Elderflower, whose floral scent is so uniquely lovely, combined with fresh lemon and vanilla bean...all infused into a riesling wine. Oh my goodness, it’s so good! Fresh, feminine, elegant, and not the same old cocktail for your next dinner party.

Lemon, Elderflower, & Vanilla Infused Wine Spritzer

  • 1 cup elderflower (fresh or dried)
  • 1 organic lemon, zested
  • 1 vanilla bean, split down the middle
  • 1 32oz bottle of Riesling (or other white wine of your choice)
  • 1 32 oz mason jar (or other sealable container to infuse in)

Dump the elderflowers, lemon zest and vanilla bean in your glass jar. Pour the wine over it and seal tightly. Let infuse for 1 weeks, occasionally shaking it every few days.

Once infused, strain the mixture through a coffee filter or cheesecloth. Pour your wine into a bottle and store for use.

To make it a spritzer, combine 3 parts wine with 1 part sparkling water in a champagne saucer or wine glass. Sip and enjoy, love!
