Elderflower Sour Cocktail

Sip your way into summer with this floral and citrusy concoction, which will hop delicately onto your palate, mellow, smooth and aromatic, with a delicate sweetness that will transport you to the rolling Somerset hills. Inspired by the hedgerows around Godminster Farm.


  • 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 beautiful glass.

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