Elderflower has long been an on-trend flavour when it comes to drinks and we love it so much that we created two recipes using this floral, botanical flavour. When paired with juice or an alcoholic or non-alcoholic spirit, the flavour combinations are endless (and always delicious).
The fresh and fragrant flavours make elderflower the perfect choice for a summer drink and because of its versatility, allows you to get creative with your summertime tipples.
The best elderflower drinks
In our range of Spectacular Sparklers, we have two elderflower tipples to take your fancy. Our sparklers are made with carbonated water and are only 65 calories per bottle. Of course, they taste delicious on their own, but they also make the perfect mixer if you want to create your own elderflower cocktail.
Our Simply Elderflower Sparkler is a softly sparkling elderflower pressé and is fresh and fragrant in equal measures. The perfect tipple to use to get creative and come up with some summery cocktails. On the other hand, our Crisp Apple & Elderflower sparkler has such a unique flavour due to the hint of apple cider vinegar and chamomile that it makes a delicious summer drink on its own.
