Right, here is the deal; I am no drinks connoisseur, however I do enjoy drinks other than a cold refreshing lager on a nice spring day. That being said, I also know a thing or two about flavours and flavour pairings, so in this article I will be sharing with my ultimate go to refreshing drinks to enjoy during your next barbecue or spring outing.
15 ml elderflower cordial
15 ml gin (optional)
1 lemon (peel and juice)
Soda water (optional)
In a large wine glass add as much ice as you want.
Add in the elderflower, gin and a squeeze of lemon juice and stir.
Top off your drink with prosecco and soda water. Or just prosecco, up to you.
Garnish with lemon peel and enjoy!
Orange blossom old fashioned
1-2 tsp simple syrup
A couple of drops of orange bitters
1-2 drops of orange blossom essence
60 ml Scotch whisky or bourbon
In a cocktail shaker add in the syrup, bitters and orange blossom essence. Add some ice and stir until the shakers starts to feel cold.
Add in the whisky or bourbon and stir for an extra 20- 30 seconds.
Serve in an ice filled glass and garnish with orange peel.
