A festive drink offers an enjoyable addition to any holiday menu. Elderflower liquor and Champagne combine easily to make a delightful Elderflower Cocktail.
I prefer to keep my occasional alcoholic drink relatively low in sugar, so a dry champagne or sparkling wine combined with a good brand of elderflower liqueur like Thatcher’s makes for a nice, lower-sugar cocktail.
If you’d like to keep things non-alcoholic, you could combine 2 ounces of Belvoir Elderflower Sparkling Juice with 1 ounce of grapefruit juice. Of course, a raspberry on top always adds a fun flourish.
