Elderflower liqueur is a liqueur made by macerating the flowers of the European Black Elder (Sambucus nigra) in alcohol. Elderflower liqueur smells like litchi and flowering fields (green, floral, polleny), and has a strong musky component. 

St. Germain (pictured) is the most common brand of elderflower liqueur.
