This gin and elderflower cocktail is another popular choice on our balcony this summer!
We use Tanqueray or Bombay Sapphire gin. The botanicals in your gin will affect the taste of the cocktail, so use a good quality gin!
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, apple juice, cordial, and a squeeze of lime. Shake it well, then strain it into a martini glass, and garnish it with a slice of lime… or not.
I make my own elderflower cordial, but once my homemade stash runs out, it’s available in nearly every grocery store here in Denmark. I don’t recall ever hearing of elderflower cordial when I lived in the States, but I’ve heard it’s available at IKEA, and I suspect you might also be able to find it at Whole Foods.
I promise it’s totally worth the hassle of tracking down the cordial!
