Ingredients

Ingredients to make an elderflower cocktail with strawberry and prosecco.
What you need to make an elderflower cocktail with strawberries and St Germain.

St. Germain is a French liqueur made from elderflowers. It gives the cocktail a sweet and floral flavor that pairs perfectly with the other ingredients.

I like to use fresh strawberries but you could also use strawberry simple syrup. A flavored syrup gives you a concentrated strawberry flavor but also adds sweetness. So consider changing the recipe to use less sugar to still get a great, fruity flavor but not so much sweetness.

Lemon adds a really nice citrusy flavor that balances out the sweetness of the strawberries and St Germain.

Castello del Poggio Prosecco is a classic Italian sparkling wine that is super delicious on its own. It’s dry and not too sweet but really drinkable. 

While I used prosecco, you can use champagne, Cava or any other type of sparkling wine.

Tips

  • Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to allow the ingredients to infuse.
  • Use fresh strawberries for the best flavor.
  • Chill your champagne glasses before serving to keep the cocktail cold and refreshing.
  • I use a champagne flute because it looks super fancy but you could serve this cocktail in a wine glass or any other type of glass if you prefer.

Ways to make the drink your own

You can make this drink the same way but use raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries instead of strawberries.

Add a splash of cranberry or pomegranate juice for another layer of flavor.

You can make this with rosé sparkling wine instead if you want a little bit of a different flavor.
