Capture the aroma of the Elderflowers into classic summer drinks
The sounds of the summer are here… Since ancient times, the blooming and harvesting of the elderflowers has indicated the start of the summer. To celebrate the short elderflowers harvest – six weeks starting at the end of May – Belvoir Fruit Farms, behind of the famous Elderflower Belvoir lemonades and cordials, has partnered with Joanna Simon, drink expert, asking her to share her favorite elderflower cocktail recipe for the summer.
“I love using elderflower cordial in cocktails and mocktails. Its infinitively versatile, adds an instant refreshing note, a delightful floral, fruity flavor and a sweetness that means you don’t need to use sugar syrups,” says the drink expert.
A classic martini with minor twists inspires Joanna Simon’s Belvoir Elderflower Allegretto. “ Transform the Martini into a delicious sparkling wine by simply serving it in a champagne flute and topping it with Prosecco, make it less dry by adding more elderflowers cordial”, she adds.
Give this recipe a try and enjoy the summer gatherings.
