One good one we made when very young and very poor was gorse flower wine. Absolutely hellish to pick the flowers but not a bad taste at all.
We picked them one sunny day on the local golf links with another couple. Gorse bushes really tall and thick. Along comes mum, dog and small son. "mummy, what are those ladies and men doing in the bushes?" "Never mind, son, come along!"
