For the cooler days of the year, a soothing glass of warm immune boosting drink is just the thing! The elderberries have proven themselves not only as a household remedy against colds and flu. The fruits also contain the dye sambucyanine. The valuable flavonoid can protect against cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Depending on your preferences, you can also refine this punch with other juices. However, you should pay attention to the designation "juice" when shopping. "Fruit nectar" and "fruit juice drink" have a lower juice content when diluted with water. The addition of sugar is also common.
