Elderflower Fizz Cocktail

Elderflower Fizz Cocktail Recipe

So on Saturday I am officially turning 26 and just like last year I'm really not sure how to feel about it. I'm closer to 30 than 20 and it just sounds so much older than I would like to be. Inside I'm still the 10 year old Disney loving princess wannabe I once was who had a diet consisting of as much sugar as possible when the real adults weren't looking. Sixteen years on and to be honest my diet is still high sugar but it now involves naughty adult treats such as alcohol so I thought as a pre-birthday treat I would share with you a recipe for one of my favourite cocktails and reap the benefits of drinking them all in the good name of the blog.

Method:

  1. First you need to garnish glasses, I've chosen sugar rims and raspberries but feel free to customise this how you choose.
  2. Place a scoop of your lemon sorbet into the middle of each glass
  3. Pour your shot of gin over the sorbet
  4. Top up with prosecco and sparkling elderflower until full, I prefer to do 50:50 split for these but again it's personal preference.
Tip: Once finished pouring your prosecco, put a tea spoon into the top of the open bottle to help keep your fizz - not sure how this works but it really does however, it won't last more than a couple of days

These cocktails are delicious and I love how the sorbet sweetens the alcohol and the contrast of the sweet and sour. I really hope you enjoy the cocktails as me and James do - I happen to have drunk a few too many as they were divine, which is not advised if you have to assignment write after, which I did, I will certainly be making these again on Saturday in large quantities. Now where is that princess dress?
