Elderflower Champagne Cocktail

Champagne cocktails are the perfect way to really amp up your celebration bubbles.

Pairing the beautiful flavour of elderflower, ramping up the happy effects with gin and balancing with fresh lemon juice is really going to help get your dancing shoes on. Oh, and don’t forget to top up with good bubbles, because bubbles make things seem better.

If you don’t have elderflower liqueur, you can substitute with elderflower cordial. Most supermarkets sell it these days, but do source one without artificial preservatives if you can.

You can even make a mocktail version of this with elderflower cordial, lemon or lime juice and soda water (club soda). It’s refreshing on a sunny summer’s day and the kids can join in the toast to good things as well.
