Elderflower cordial making season is here!! The taste of summer, ice-cream, sunbathing, swimming….and of course all things elderflower.  This refreshing and delicious syrup is a great way to capture in a bottle the essence of summer and is a beautiful seasonal ingredient in cocktails and sorbets!

Making the most of this sweet flower, the Damson Tree Collins looks, tastes and smells like ‘summer in a glass.’  Capturing the aroma of summer evenings, no summer is complete without a Damson Vodka cocktail and elderflower…….

  • Add 60ml Gin
  • 15ml elderflower liqueur
  • 15ml rose petal syrup
  • dash of orange bitters
  • squeeze of lemon juice

Shake in a cocktail shaker and garnish with a lemon twist and flowers, top with soda water.  Use a pipette to drop a shot of Damson Vodka to create the colour contrast at the bottom of the glass, yum!!
