This summer the country will be swept along on a wave of patriotism and celebrations, thanks to the Jubilee, the Olympics and Wimbledon. For some that might mean a chance for some sausages on sticks and a few drinks – but we’d like to suggest a more beautiful way to get into the spirit!
Here are two cocktails created using our elderflower vodka spirit, which is made using pure English vodka, gently infused with elderflower on Godminster Farm. The cocktails are very simple to make and deliciously refreshing for the long hot summer months ahead!
Godminster Aromatic Garden Cocktail
1 rosemary sprig, leaves stripped
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
40ml Godminster vintage elderflower spirit drink
150ml cloudy apple juice
Muddle together rosemary sprigs and lime, then shake together with Godminster vintage elderflower spirit drink, apple juice and ice, strain into a martini glass and serve.
Godminster Blush Elderflower Champagne Cocktail
1 sugar cube
1 – 2 drops Angostura bitters (optional)
40ml pomegranate juice
25ml Godminster vintage elderflower spirit drink
Place a sugar cube in the bottom of a champagne glass. Next add the angostura bitters if using.
Pour in the pomegranate juice and Godminster vintage elderflower spirit drink, top with champagne and serve.
