For the Syrup:
  1. In a saucepan with a lid, place elderberries and water. If desired, stir in 3 tablespoons of any combination of powdered ginger, cinnamon or cloves.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, partially covered. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 to 40 minutes until liquid is reduced by half.
  3. Remove from heat, let cool and pour through strainer into a heat-proof bowl. Discard berries.
  4. Stir in honey or agave syrup.
  5. Pour into a jar with a lid. May be stored in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
For the Mocktail:
  1. In a glass bowl, combine ½ cup elderberry syrup, lime juice, spearmint and blueberries. Lightly mash together with a muddler so that some blueberries break and release their juices.
  2. In a pitcher, combine berry mixture and lime soda, stirring to mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour over ice and add lime slices and mint leaves for garnish. Serve.
