Elderflower is a floral and refreshing flavour that goes hand in hand with a quality flavoured gin to make for a smooth and bittersweet drink. This fizz cocktail is especially delightful to try in spring and summer when you can even harvest your elderflower sprigs yourself due to it being a common flower in the UK.
