English Garden Fizz Cocktail

6 cocktails

10 minutes

The delicate fruitiness in Prosecco and juniper notes in London dry gin are just asking for a shot of floral, sweet elderflower cordial, hand made by Natasha at The Urban Cordial Company - just think of summer in a Champagne flute and you'll get the idea! If you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by elderflower trees or know a good foraging spot, try making your own elderflower cordial at the height of their season in June (see chef's tip below).

Here’s how you do it

  1. Chill Prosecco and soda water. If you’re a keen bean, keep your gin in the freezer.
  2. Pour the gin and elderflower into a flute glass, top with soda and Prosecco.
  3. Garnish with a sprig of fresh elderflower (if it’s June).

Homemade elderflower cordial: Trim the stalks off 20 elderflower heads, remove any obvious little creatures and gently rinse. Add to a large pan or jug with the pared rind of 2 lemons. In another pan, gently heat 600g of sugar with 1 litre of water until the sugar has dissolved. Pour over the flowers and lemon. Allow to cool, add the juice of 2 lemons and leave for 6 hours. Strain and store in sterilised jars for up four weeks.
