After trying lovage for the first time last week, I was interested in trying lovage with something sweeter than pea soup. I don't know the exact amounts I used so this is just a rough guide. Be sure not to use too much lovage as it has a very strong flavor. If you were to make a large jug of this tonic, two to three lovage leaves are all that are needed. Elderflower tonic is sold in most health food shops. Other high quality cordials can be substituted if elderflower is unavailable.
For this tonic you will need:
Fresh or frozen raspberries
Lovage leaves or mint if lovage is unavailable
In a large jug mix fresh or frozen raspberries, elderflower cordial, chopped lovage, ice, some fresh lemon juice and vodka (if using) to taste. Add cold soda water and taste. If more sweetness etc. is needed add to taste.
