Ready for my final Christmas cocktail of 2020? An easy, refreshing, and simple sparkling elderflower gin cocktail!
Wanna know a secret? I found this recipe buried deep in my photos from last Christmas.
Honestly, I don't even know what happened. Better late (a YEAR late 🤦🏼♀️) than never right?
Anyhoo, about this sparkling gin elderflower cocktail. It's actually adapted from the book "The Starless Sea" which was a version of the Drowning Ophelia cocktail from Shakespeare's Hamlet.
Super easy, quick, and refreshing, this beverage is made from just 4 ingredients: your favorite gin, some freshly squeezed lemon juice, a teaspoon or 2 of elderflower liqueur, and a splash of champagne or sparkling Prosecco on top. That's it! Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon.
