Elderflower Cocktail Recipe

Photo by: Clarinta Subrata

Elderflower liqueur has been one of my go-to ingredients for years, it's so simple to add a splash to white wine or champagne for an instantly delicious cocktail!  Elderflower liqueur is made in France from fresh elder flowers which only bloom for a few weeks each year.  The flowers are hand picked using traditional techniques, and then carefully distilled so that their complex and rich floral flavor shines.

  • Ingredients:
  • Elderflower liqueur (I like St. Germain)
  • Champagne
  • Optional: garnish of fresh orange or lemon peel
  • Directions:
  • Fill a glass 1/3 of the way with elderflower liqueur, then top off with champagne.
  • If desired, add a twist of fresh orange or lemon peel.
  • Enjoy!
