Elderflower Collins Cocktail Receipe

Elderflowers have to be the ultimate in ‘old world’ ingredients that are not commonly found in Australia. The scent of Elderflowers is amazing and I think the delicate flowery taste is wasted on baked cakes but is perfect in a drink. ┬áThis recipe was inspired by an advert I saw in an Australian paper and used Appletiser.

Elderflower Collins

  • Elderflower cordial
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • Appletiser or sparkling apple juice
  • Zubrowka Vodka
  • Ice cubes

Mix main ingredients in a tall glass with plenty of ice and top with sparkling apple juice. The Bison grass vodka adds to a great taste.

Cielo Cocktail Recipe

Having never drunk Cassis … I was inspired after reading an article about UK Blackcurrant producers in the Guardian.

Cielo Cocktail Recipe

  • Cassis
  • Vodka
  • Ginger Ale
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • Dash of Bitters

Combine all ingredients in a tall glass.

The colour was more red than black currant and mine tasted strongly of bitters. Unfortunately we ran out of Cassis so I couldn’t attempt a second one.
