Having made my annual batch of Ederflower Cordial at the weekend, I thought I would share the recipe for Elderflower Rum Fizz, a delicious cross between a Mojito and Pimm’s and a perfect refreshing summer cocktail.
Elderflower Rum Fizz
Makes 2 glasses
12 mint leaves
75ml Elderflower cordial (see recipe in previous blog post)
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
250-300ml sparkling water
1ce and mint sprigs to serve
Put the mint leaves and elderflower cordial into a jug and pummel with the end of a rolling pin to realease the oil from the mint. Add the rum and lemon juice, mix and then top up with sparkling water.
Thank you to Ghillie James for the recipe from her book “Jam, Jelly and Relish” which is packed with seasonal recipes.
