We’ve all had a champagne cocktail, but the Elderflower syrup brings this drink to a new level. Now, you might be thinking, what exactly does Elderflower Syrup taste like? Let’s start from the beginning. An Elderflower is a small white blossom that comes from the Elderberry tree. When mixed over time with a simple syrup you're left with a fresh, slightly fruity, and floral taste; AKA perfect for a spring night. This mixed with the crisp, bubbly taste of champagne is just *chef’s kiss*. We can assure you that whoever you serve this Elderflower Champagne Cocktail to will immediately ask for the recipe… and a refill.

Whether you’re making this cocktail for a whole group of people, or just for yourself (no judgment here); when you have a drink that’s this beautiful, you just have to have something equally as pretty to put it in – we don’t make the rules. Luckily here at For Your Party, we’ve got you covered on all things pretty and personalized… barware included.

Let's Mix It All Up
For such an elegant cocktail, it is unbelievably easy to whip up. This recipe only calls for six ingredients, but feel free to adjust to your taste.
These include champagne, elderflower syrup (you can usually find this at your local liquor store, or make your own if you’re feeling ambitious), club soda, and your choice of garnish. In this case, we thought orange slices, mint leaves, and rosemary were appropriate, but feel free to sub in other fruits like raspberries, pears, or strawberries depending on your mood or what you have on hand. You can also adjust this Elderflower Champagne Cocktail to be non-alcoholic, simply by leaving out the champagne!
