elderflower cocktail


I’m having a love affair with elderflower this summer…I’ve become quite obsessed (as evidenced here). Delicate + refreshing, it can be imbibed in many fabulous ways-it pairs well with champagne, white wine, and also makes an amazing non-alcoholic spritzer. I must thank Terrain for introducing me to elderflower + for this perfect summer cocktail! What is your favorite thing to drink this time of year? Please share details!

6 oz. elderflower presse + 1 tbs. rose syrup + 1 oz. vodka

shake vigorously in cocktail shaker, garnish with rose petals


    • Yes, so refreshing–I thought of you actually because I know it’s big in the UK (that presse is a UK company). Funny you should mention having it as a boy ;)

  1. I loved our trip to Terrain!!! And I simply MUST get my hands on some Elderflower one of these days.

    Can’t wait to see you again next week! :)

    • Yes, so much fun Melanie…looking forward to seeing you soon too!

  2. This was my brother’s favorite summertime cocktail:
    1oz Hendricks
    1oz St. Germain (Elderflower)
    3/4 lime
    Muddle 6 Mint leaves
    Topped with soda
    Garnished with cucumber slices

    • I’ve been meaning to try St. Germain Karen, thanks for sharing! Sounds delicious.
