.Pick Your Poison | The Elderflower Gintlime Fizz.
For my birthday the lovely Beth bought me a little cocktail kit and started me off on a delicious new boozy hobby! A few weeks and a shaker/muddler/strainer upgrade later I’m mastering classics left right and centre and even designing my own delicious creations…such as this summer beaut - The Elderflower Gintlime Fizz!
1 shot good quality gin (Greenalls or Bombay Sapphire work well)
1/2 shot elderflower cordial
Handful of mint leaves
Half a lime
Good slice of cucumber (and one to garnish)
Topped up with prosecco (or champagne if you’re feelin’ fancy!)
Muddle together the mint and cucumber and squeeze in your lime. Add your gin and cordial with some ice and sh-sh-sh-shake it! Strain into a chilled martini glass, top up with fizz and garnish with a slice of cucumber to serve!
Fresh, zesty and smooth this is the perfect English summer garden cocktail ideal for sipping outside with some cakes or alfresco nibbles.
So what are you waiting for? Get out your best gin and start shaking - Happy Friday folks!
