Elderflower Champagne Cocktail

The joy of spring is the same for all. After a long winter (especially a bad one) the sight of the sun, the sound of birds singing, and the absence of snow and rain, is truly a reason for celebration.

And celebrate you should, as spring doesn’t always stick around and can occur tentatively to start. So throw open a window – perhaps put a jumper on first – and make something special.

This Elderflower Champagne cocktail is just the thing. Perfect for toasting the start of spring. A marriage of sweet, tart, light and fizzy that tastes delicious.
