Black Elderberry glycerite has a sweet, tart and fruity taste. One delicious way to take it all winter long is in warm water. Adding a bit of local honey plays up Black Elderberry’s sweet side, while a squeeze of lemon offers a hint of sour tang. Since this drink uses warm — not boiling — water, it only takes a couple of minutes to prepare.

Serves 1


½ teaspoon local organic honey, or to taste
4 ounces warm (not boiling or steaming) filtered water
0.7 ml Herb Pharm Black Elderberry Alcohol-Free Extract+
1 organic lemon wedge


  1. Place the honey in the bottom of a mug.
  2. Carefully pour in the warm water, then stir until the honey has dissolved.
  3. Add the Black Elderberry, Alcohol-Free, then stir again.
  4. Squeeze the lemon wedge into the mug, and serve immediately.


+One full squeeze of the dropper equals 0.7 ml; provides approximately 1 serving of Black Elderberry Alcohol-Free Extract.
