What is Elderflower Liqueur and what does it taste like?

Elderflower liqueur is made from the small, white flowers of the elderflower bush. These blossoms are often handpicked and the liqueur is made with no preservatives or stabilizers (which means it really should be used in about 6 months for best flavor).

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.

Does it matter what kind of gin I use in this cocktail?

Not really. Use your favorite as the taste of it shines through in this drink.

As with all recipes with a short ingredient list, use high-quality gin and leave the less expensive brands for sangria.

Some of our favorites are Norseman, Tanqueray, or Bombay Sapphire. 

Why do I need the sugared rim on the martini glass?

Usually, garnishes are just for looks, but this is one drink where the garnishes really complete the cocktail.

That sparkly sip of sugar makes this cocktail extra fancy and the lime juice is the only part of the cocktail that isn’t alcohol.

So please don’t skimp on it.

How do I make a sugar-rimmed glass?

Fortunately, sugar garnishes aren’t a lot of work. Simply pour sugar on a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the edge of the martini glass and then dip the juice-coated rim in sugar. Voila! Instant sugar rim! 

All that’s left to do is a squeeze of lime juice and you have fancy-looking cocktails to serve your guests that look as impressive as it tastes.

What is the difference between Prosecco and Champagne?

Prosecco is Italy’s version of Champagne. We love to use Prosecco in our sparkling cocktails for a few reasons:

  • It’s typically less expensive than Champagne making it more cost-effective when you need to buy several bottles of sparkling wine for your guests.
  • Prosecco often has a lighter, fruitier flavor than Champagne and easily mixes with ingredients like fruit juices and other liquors.

Looking for a stiff drink? Add just a bit of Prosecco.

Want a lighter drink? Be generous with your bubbles. Any way you pour it, you can’t go wrong.

Cheers!
