Lilac Wine

A little something for your senses, Lilac Wine,  sang by Nina Simone. Others have tried to sing the song, but Simone makes you feel this song down to your soul.

The lyrics form a narrative in which the singer recounts her heartache at losing a lover and taking solace from wine made from lilacs, a beloved edible flower. She is filled with bliss due to being tipsy or shall we say intoxicated? 

Did you know that lilac wine is really a thing? It actually seems easy to make, though if you know of a good one let me know, because I will so buy it.  Cheers!
