Don't worry, this isn't a hard drink to make. Follow these simple steps.
- Add ice to your favorite shaker
- Add the Elderflower Liqueur, lemon juice and gin.
- Shake vigorously to combine liquids.
- Divide shaker contents into champagne flutes.
- Top with Prosecco and serve
You might be surprised, but yes you can! Even though it contains Prosecco you can still prep some of the mixture ahead of time. Simply mix everything but the Prosecco in a shaker and then top with bubbles as people arrive.
The liqueur has a delicate floral flavor that is more subtle than you’d expect. Since elderflower liqueur is rather sweet, you can easily use it to replace other sweeteners in your cocktail recipes like simple syrup, agave and maple syrup.
It's recommended that it is used within 6 months of opening the bottle for the best taste. Once you try elderflower, you won't have a problem using the bottle before it goes bad.
These tools aren't necessary but they sure do make the process a lot easier!
- Lemon Squeezer - Once you stop trying to hand squeeze lemons, and switch to even a basic handheld lemon squeezer, your life will be changed forever. It's one of my favorite cocktail tools.
- Measuring Cups - If you don't want to use a shot glass or you're making big-batch cocktails, measuring cups are a great substitute and they have so many other uses!
- Cocktail shaker - A good cocktail shaker is a tool every good hostess needs in their kitchen. You won't believe the difference it makes for a cocktail when you mix it up in a shaker. You get that perfect ice-cold mixture!
