Elderflower cordial in Zurich somewhere?
 Hi,
for a recipe I want to try, I need maybe 1 or 1.5 litres of elderflower cordial.
Does anyone know where to get that?
I'd like to avoid mail-ordering from the UK - I need it towards the end of the month.

Sounds like the sort of thing they would have in one of those Egli organic food stores. There's one in HB downstairs opposite the entrance to the fruit and veg bit of Migros. 

With their interest in krautertee and the Carpe Diem range and other plant and flower derived beverages I would be surprised if the Swiss weren't also into this, which is understandable as it's all good stuff!

 I'm not sure if I need "interesting" food in this case.The ingredients for the cake end-up being quite expensive (16 eggs, the cordial, rice-flour, butter, sugar).I will definitely try it with a smaller amount to see how the layers taste...

Well, it's got three tiers (2+1).  It's wedding cake (not my wedding, but my
brother's). "Serves 80", according to the recipe.
But currently the problem
is getting the elderflower cordial here. Jim's market doesn't do deliveries and I need to try out
at least the dough once before I flip the big switch ;-)So, I'm contemplating baking a
"normal" 3-tiered fancy cake, of which there are plenty of recipes
around...

 Ah, so it's for a wedding cake... I was wondering about all those eggs :) If the elderflower's too
much hassle and you still want to do a floral themed cake, might be easier to find rosewater or
orange blossom water (which has a wedding significance I think)... or dress up the normal
cake with some real flowers or petals... lots of possibilities :)
