Recipe: Elderflower and White Wine Spritzers

Monday, 13 April 2015


Spring has officially sprung...


And it is beautiful!


I'm fortunate enough to live right by Battersea Park - so I can get my fix of grass, sunshine and blossom!



When the weather gets better it just makes me feel so much happier...

And what makes me feel even happier is sitting in the sun with a White Wine and Elderflower Spritzer in my hand!


I first had these last summer at Hush in Mayfair


And I kept meaning to make them!

I went back last week, had a couple and was determined to make my own variation at home...

You need...

White wine (preferably Chenin Blanc)
Lemonade
Elderflower Cordial
Ice

Start out with plenty of ice in your glasses...

Pour in a shot of Elderflower (or a shot and a half if like me you could drink the stuff straight)

Then top up with a large glass of wine


Get your handy assistant to top up with lemonade...



Give it a stir and you my friend have the most delicious summery drink in the world


It is particularly good because it spruces up cheap white wine that would usually make you gag


Drinking cheap white wine is so gross....but add elderflower and lemonade and you could be having a fancy cocktail...at a fraction of the price.

I am going to live off these this summer!

Plus its diet lemonade...it can't be that bad for you righttt?


Let me know in the comments below if you have any summery cocktail suggestions for me to try!
