What better way to celebrate The Bouquet issue than with flower-inspired cocktails? We had so much fun creating cocktails inspired by all things pretty and we’re sharing one of our favourites today – the Elderflower Tom Collins!
We love the fresh and sprightly combination of lemon and gin in this concoction and, for something different, we added a splash of our favourite elderflower liqueur St Germain to bump the up the floral sweetness. This one is perfectly appropriate for a garden party, with hats and parasols in the dappled shade.

Ingredients

  • 30ml gin
  • 25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 20ml elderflower & rose cordial (we used this gorgeous one from Belvoir Farms)
  • 10ml St Germain liqueur
  • soda water
  • lemon wedges
  • ice

Method

  1. In a cocktail shaker add ice, liqueur, gin, cordial and lemon juice.
  2. Shake until well combined.
  3. Pour your cocktail into a tall glass.
  4. Top with chilled soda water.
  5. Garnish with lemon wedges or slices.
