Elderflower Cocktail recipes
Posted on October 01 2020
Summer is almost here, and we all know what goes amazingly well with the warm weather: refreshing cocktails! Right?
At Fizztopia, we love mixing our sparkling drinks with other spirits and herbs, to create original, thirst-quenching, full of flavours cocktails that will impress your friends.
This week, we will focus on a fragrant flower that made its way to some of the best cocktails in town: Elderflower!
Refreshing and delicious, elderflower can make all the difference between a good cocktail and a ‘wow-this-is-gorgeous’ kind of cocktail. Below are two bar-quality cocktail recipes using Elderflower Sparkling from Tasmania, using either Italian Prosecco or Gin.
200ml Italian Prosecco (e.g. Amanti Realuna Prosecco)
100ml Ashbolt Elderflower Sparkling
50ml StrangeLove Holy Grapefruit
Serve with mint leaves and ice in large cocktail glass
We all love a good Spritzer – so how about we give it a slightly herbaceous, round citrusy twist?
This Elderflower Spritzer will impress your friends by its originality and freshness.
Mix a high-quality Italian Prosecco, with Tasmanian-made Elderflower Sparkling and Cuban grapefruits, and you end up with a new crowd-pleaser.
30 ml gin (e.g. Four Pillars Original Gin)
Top up with Ashbolt Elderflower Sparkling
Splash of lime
Serve with a thinly sliced cucumber and ice in gin glasses
Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. Only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes are needed to create this original G&T, with a pleasant, dominant elderflower taste. A fresh, zesty, and easy-to-drink cocktail. Up the quantity by 6 to turn it into an Elderflower G&T Punch.
