This refreshing cocktail calls for elderberry syrup—if you've tried trendy St-Germain elderflower liqueur, which is made from the same plant, the flavor of elderberry syrup is somewhat similar but not as floral. Stock up on the syrup for this cocktail and for your health—research shows that it can help you recover from a cold faster. (One brand, Sambucol, is widely available in supermarket supplement sections.)
