Elderberry Elixir

I put together an elderberry elixir today, inspired by Kiva's Elder Mother Immune Elixir.

In a quart jar I placed:
1/4 ounce dried ginger root
1/4 ounce sweet cinnamon chips
1/4 ounce dried orange peel
1/4 ounce elder flowers
3 ounces elder berries
7 ounces honey

Then I filled the rest of the jar with brandy. It took just under a fifth to fill it after mixing well.

My goal is to create a wonderful immune elixir for Christmas baskets and then add some tinctures for a lung tonic for a couple family members with ongoing lung issues. I'll post back as to how it all worked out. Meanwhile, it looks lovely.
