Elderflower and cucumber gin fizz

June 27th, 2011


Have you made your elderflower cordial yet? If so, this is the perfect cocktail to use it in – probably the most refreshing thing you could drink on a summer day (even if the weather doesn’t cooperate) and it’s still delicious with shop bought cordial.

I love cucumber in drinks, try blending a peeled cucumber, sieving the juice and adding it to a gin and tonic. Or add a splash of elderflower cordial and a few slices of cucumber to a glass of fizz. Even better, make this cocktail.

cucumber slices
mint leaves
1 part elderflower cordial
1 part gin
2 parts sparkling water
handful ice

Mix all of the ingredients together in a glass and add more elderflower or gin, to taste. You want a bit of a kick from the gin!
