It's Spring and Spring means flowers in my book. What better way to celebrate then elderFLOWER cocktails!
It’s very refreshing, but not too sweet (unless you add sugar syrup!) which I absolutely love. Although I will warn you – it’s quite potent. If you don’t want to feel giddy after one glass, then just use half of the gin and St. Germain. I personally like my cocktails quite strong though!
When it comes to at-home cocktail making, I like to keep things quite simple. There’s no fancy techniques required here or equipment either really. Just gather all the ingredients and you’re good to go!
50ml St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
50ml Gin of your choice
Prosecco (to top up)
100ml Lemon Juice
Sugar Syrup to taste (optional)
Mix together the St. Germain, gin and lemon juice. You can do this either in a cocktail shaker or just in a glass with a spoon!
Add in some sugar syrup if you like your cocktails to be a little bit sweeter.
Split the mix between two glasses.
Top up with prosecco and enjoy!
Let me know what you think and if you’ll be giving this gin elderflower cocktail a go! I can see myself making these a lot this Spring.
