Elderflower Spritzers (Alcoholic & Non-Alcoholic)

On our recent trip to Maine, I packed along everything we needed for cocktails. I had recently purchased a bottle of Belvoir Elderflower Cordial (can purchase here) and wanted to try out an Elderflower Spritzer, which seemed like a refreshingly summery cocktail. An added bonus was that it requires few ingredients. (Tip: You can easily pack fresh herbs by simply popping them into a Ziploc bag and leaving a bit of air in the bag. They will keep very fresh for several days.) I made an alcoholic version and a mocktail.



- Elderflower Spritzer -

Fill an old fashioned glass with ice cubes. Add 1 1/2 oz. of Prosecco (I buy the mini bottles for convenience) and
scant 1 oz. of Belvoir Elderflower Liqueur, and top
with San Pellegrino. Garnish with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.

- Elderflower Spritzer Mocktail - 

Fill an old fashioned glass ice cubes. Add 1 oz. of Belvoir Elderflower Liqueur, a squeeze of lemon (I hand squeezed 1/2 a lemon), and top with San Pellegrino. Garnish with a
slice of lemon and a sprig of mint. 

Notes:
- the Elderflower Liqueur is not alcoholic.
- garnishing the cocktail and the mocktail with a slice of lime and a slice of lemon, respectively, will help everyone not to get their drinks confused.
