The steps to making a Sparkling Elderflower Cocktail are outlined below. This simple mixed drink has a bouquet of flowery odours, and it tastes just as pleasant as it smells (which is to say, quite nice). The Elderflower Liqueur and Gin are a very wonderful balance to one another, and the Lime Garnish helps to keep everything where it should be. Try it out for yourself, and then get back to me with your feedback.
