Homemade Elderberry Lemonade Concentrate

Ever since I invented this recipe for elderberry lemonade for a pot luck a few years ago, it’s been a favorite drink everywhere I take it.  I created the recipe after I published my elderberry book but I wanted to put it online in case anybody else would like to try it.

Why We Can't Sleep by Ada Calhoun
“Gen Xers are in 'the prime of their lives' at a particularly dangerous and divisive moment,' Boomer marketing expert Faith Popcorn told me. 'They have been hit hard financially and dismissed culturally. They have tons of debt. They're squeezed on both sides by children and aging parents. The grim state of adulthood is hitting them hard. If they're exhausted and bewildered, they have every reason to feel that way.”
Ada Calhoun

Days Without End by Sebastian Barry
"I can't say this was for me. Very violent which I can usually handle if there is a strong connection to the characters, but that didn't happen here. I'm very surprised since I loved the other books by this author that I've read."
