It’s the weekend again, yay! So following on from my very first cocktail recipe, these Pink Grapefruit Margaritas and these Cinnamon White Russians, I’ve decided that making cocktails is almost as much fun as drinking them! So except to see a few more recipes, starting with this Elderflower Breeze.
I like sharp and sweet flavours in cocktails so wanted to create something along these lines. This one uses purely vodka as the spirit combined with elderflower and lemon, which are such light flavours and perfect for a long refreshing drink to celebrate the end of the working week in style!
Makes 2 drinks
- 50ml Vodka
- 50ml Elderflower cordial
- 200ml Tonic ( we used Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic)
- 25 ml Sugar Syrup
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Ice Cubes
- lemon peel/slices to deocrate
- Put all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add plenty of ice and shake hard for 30 seconds.
- Strain into two glasses filled with crushed or cubes of ice.
If you like the idea of some mixology in your own home try out some of these other vodka or elderflower based drinks!
