The Elderflower Sour with Godminster Vodka Spirit - with thanks to Blackacre Farm Eggs

What you’ll need…

  • 1 whole egg white
  • 50ml Godminster Elderflower Vodka Spirit
  • 25ml lemon juice and rind for garnish
  • 12.5ml sugar syrup (two parts sugar, one-part water)
  • Soda water
  • Edible flowers (optional)
  • Ice

Let’s get shaking!

Add the egg white, one ice cube, vodka, lemon and sugar syrup to your cocktail shaker and shake as hard as possible. The harder you shake at this stage, the frothier and more aromatic the cocktail will be.

Pop some more ice in and give it another good shake, before pouring into a large martini glass.

Top with soda water and garnish with unwaxed lemon rind and edible flowers if using.
