Get Out the Maypole

Time to celebrate the true start of summer. This Saturday marks the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year. So what if you don't have your own Maypole, just get some friends together and celebrate. Elderflower martini's are deliciously festive and may lower your inhibitions just enough to wear a flowered wreath in your hair. You can brush up on Midsummer here.

My very simple Elderflower Martini recipe:

1 oz. Elderflower Syrup (Ikea is a great source.)
3 oz. frozen Vodka (Your favorite brand or just a decent one. The elderflower syrup can hide even a mediocre vodka's flaws.)

Rub a lemon twist around the rim of the glass and garnish.
