The biggest party night of the year is almost upon us. If you’re hosting a party then it’s not too late to whip up this delicious champagne cocktail to wow your guests.
You will need sugar syrup for this recipe (if you don’t have any you can make some by gently heating a cup of water in a saucepan with a cup of sugar). Don’t let the mixture get too hot – it shouldn’t even come to a simmer. Stir the syrup and, once the sugar seems to be dissolved, add another cup of sugar and continue mixing until this is also dissolved. Allow to cool and store in the fridge for up to 6 months.
½ freshly squeezed lemon or 5ml lemon juice
5ml sugar syrup 25ml St. Germain (elderflower liqueur)
Champagne to top up
1 x raspberry
Lemon swirl, made from lemon rind
Add the following into a cocktail shaker: freshly squeezed lemon/lemon juice, sugar syrup and St Germain.
Give it a good shake and strain into a champagne glass.
Top with champagne and add the garnish.
